eWic is Here!

The pilot for transitioning to the digital benefits card began June 3, 2019 in Solano and Napa counties! Since the pilot has completed, the cards are being rolled out statewide in 10 waves by geographic areas. A new wave will go live approximately every 4 weeks starting in October. The Go Live date is the first day a local agency site begins issuing the cards. Over time, paper checks commonly referred to as the “paper vouchers” will be phased out. The transition to the digital cards will be complete statewide by March 30, 2020.
