  3. Haitian Refugees in the WIC Program:  Due to the recent earthquake in Haiti, some Haitian refugees may come to Missouri and ask to be on the WIC program.  In general, the Haitian refugees should be treated as anyone else seeking to be on WIC.  If the person is homeless, treat them as you would anyone else who is homeless.  See E.R. # 2.05200.  If the person is living in a homeless facility or similar institution, refer to the same E.R., paying particular attention to sections B. and C.  The local WIC provider shall have an MOU with the homeless facility or other institution where the WIC participant is residing.  If you have questions, please contact the TA team assigned to your area.
