HANDS Mobile- and Device-Friendly Support For Participant-Centered Services for WIC

The Health And Nutrition Delivery System (HANDS) by CMA supports participant-centered services for Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) programs.

HANDS is a flexible and customizable system that is operational in five state agencies.

HANDS will easily comply with the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, which mandates that states provide EBT to clients by Oct. 1, 2020. EBT Operational activities have started, with a planned rollout in 2017.
