Open enrollment period for WIC Vendors in the South Florida Region only begins February 1, 2017. The application period closes March 31, 2017. You may apply only if your store is located in a South Region County counties listed below.

This application cycle will be for the vendor authorization period from July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2020. Applicants will be accepted for qualification screening that will be completed prior to June 30, 2017.

Applicants must have been in the grocery business for at least one year. For current WIC Authorized vendors, the WIC Vendor agreement does not constitute a license or a property interest. If a current WIC Authorized vendor in the South Florida Region wishes to continue to be authorized beyond the period of its current agreement (ending no later than June 30, 2017), the vendor must reapply for authorization.

Applicants new to WIC will be asked to provide their competitive prices for WIC products. All applicant vendor prices will be evaluated and only those stores offering prices competitive within their peer group will be accepted to participate as a WIC vendor.

Any South Region store interested in becoming an authorized WIC Vendor or renewing their participation as a WIC vendor, subject to vendor requirements, must apply during the enrollment period.

A background screening will be completed on applications received.
