More West Virginians will now be eligible for Women, Infants and Children's (WIC) services.

West Virginia Department of Health and Human Resources says a family of two can now make $26,995 a year and be considered eligible for services.

For other household sizes, add $6,919 for each additional household member.

The eligibility expansion will allow for more pregnant, breastfeeding, and postpartum women to obtain help, as well as infants and children to age 5.

The program, while providing several services, helps with supplemental foods for women and children.
