The West Virginia WIC Vendor Management System is an online portal available for an owner or authorized representative to complete and submit an application for each store location for which your business is seeking WIC authorization. Applications are currently being accepted, and you may find more application resources here. Submitting an application does not guarantee authorization. Each business will receive written notice about receipt of the application as well as our decision regarding the application.

WIC Program is required to offer training to WIC Authorized stores on an annual
basis. The Annual Training

For each store, the manager or trainer must acknowledge that the training
newsletter has been read by completing the survey included with the Annual Training Newsletter. Per federal regulations (7CFR Ch.II, §246(h)(B)(xii)), “the vendor must inform and train cashiers and other staff on program requirements,” so please share this information with all store employees involved with WIC. You may also consider posting a copy of the training newsletter in a central location, and including a copy in your Vendor Handbook for future reference and training purposes.
The cashier training videos are an additional resource to use in tandem with the training newsletter. The two videos can be viewed depending on how your stores' system operates. Please view either the Cashier Training Video Integrated or the Cashier Training Video Stand Beside.
All training is to be completed by September 15, 2023.
