Suburban Mayors announce expansion of partnership for shared WIC Services

The City of Cudahy and the City of West Allis are forming a unique partnership for the continuation of WIC (Women, Infants, and Children) services currently administered at the Cudahy Health Department. WIC is a federally funded program that provides vouchers for supplemental nutritious foods, nutrition education and referrals for other health and social services including immunizations and lead screening to income eligible pregnant and breastfeeding women and children 0 – 5 years of age.

Effective July 01, 2014, the City of Cudahy will enter into an agreement with the City of West Allis to assume management of the WIC program, while continuing to serve as a satellite location along with the City of Greenfield for the program. This new partnership builds and expands upon the WIC partnership agreement between the City of West Allis and the City of Wauwatosa.

“Working cooperatively, and thinking outside of the box, we have developed this partnership between our four municipalities,” stated Mayor John Hohenfeldt. This will allow us to continue to offer this program to residents of our community and all communities which have utilized the City of Cudahy location.
“Through collaborative partnerships, such as this, we are able to leverage our resources and expertise so we can provide cost-effective, high quality services that meet the needs of our respective communities” stated Mayor Dan Devine.

Greenfield Mayor, Michael Neitzke, echoes governmental collaboration. “Thoughtful planning and collaboration led to this partnership that will improve service delivery for WIC participants within our respective communities and region.”

WIC participants at the Cudahy and Greenfield sites will be receiving a letter notifying them of the change and it will contain an updated clinic schedule and program contact information.
