The USDA WIC Telehealth Innovations Project will enter
into a cooperative agreement for a single entity to
support the implementation and evaluation of telehealth
services in the Women, Infants and Children (WIC) federal
nutrition assistance program that serves low-income
pregnant, postpartum, and breastfeeding women; infants;
and children up to 5 years old who are at nutrition risk.
The purpose of the telehealth program is to supplement
the nutrition education and breastfeeding support offered
in WIC clinics, and to decrease barriers to access to WIC
services, particularly in rural communities, and other
populations facing barriers to accessing support.
The recipient of this cooperative agreement will carry
out a competitive award process to select sub-grantees
out of WIC State Agencies for the purpose of implementing
telehealth innovations that supplement the nutrition
education and breastfeeding support offered in WIC
clinics. The recipient will also design and conduct
evaluations of each sub-grantee's telehealth innovation
project and produce reports and publications to
disseminate the findings.
Eligible applicants are public and private accredited
colleges and universities.
