How to Become a WIC Vendor

Any owner of a grocery store or pharmacy located in Wisconsin may apply for authorization as a WIC vendor.

WIC authorization does not transfer to a new owner when a change of ownership occurs. 

Vendors cannot accept WIC benefits until all application requirements are met, including:

  • completing all required forms and submitting supporting documents; 
  • passing a site visit; 
  • completing a training program; and
  • receiving an authorization letter from WIC. 

Completion of the application does not guarantee WIC vendor authorization. Submission of false information will result in denial of the application.
