Osage Nation Rolls Out eWIC to Replace Paper Vouchers


December 7, 2017

PAWHUSKA, OKLAHOMA — Osage Nation Women, Infants and Children (WIC), a maternal and child health nutrition program, is now offering its families a new way to shop for WIC food benefits using an EBT (electronic benefit transfer) card. After a quick set-up, new and current recipients can begin using their cards immediately.

“The EBT card has all the products and services the participant is supposed to receive and they can take that card to the grocery store immediately and purchase the products they have been approved for and swipe to pay instead of paying with a paper voucher,” said Scott Hilboldt, Project Manager for CDP.
