In addition to the main national information page, many local and state government pages related to the WIC program are also available in Spanish, especially in areas with large Spanish-speaking populations. For example, the California Department of Public Health provides a Spanish version of its WIC program information page. The New York State Department of Public Health also provides a Spanish-language version of the "WIC Participant Handbook" on its website.

To find Spanish-language materials for your state, visit your local WIC website, and look for a Spanish language tab or icon. Participants or potential applicants who require additional assistance can get information via phone. After calling the general WIC Hotline number for a specific area, select Spanish language services when prompted to do so.

If you have trouble accessing Spanish language information about the WIC program, local community organizations and social service providers that cater to Spanish speakers may also be able to guide you through the application process or connect you with resources for additional assistance.
