The state of Michigan says there is enough money to keep providing healthy food to low- and moderate-income pregnant women and children for about a month.
Earlier this week Gov. Rick Snyder's administration expressed concerned that federal funding might only last for 10 days due to the partial shutdown of the federal government. But the state Department of Community Health says "spend forward" money and reallocated funding will sustain the program for four to five weeks.
The Women, Infants and Children, or WIC, program provides food and baby formula to women and children up to age 5.
More than half of the babies born in Michigan are enrolled in the program.
