Helena is one of the first communities in Montana to offer an electronic benefit system for participants in its WIC supplemental nutrition program. The new system, called eWIC, replaces paper benefits with a charge card similar to a credit or debit card. Helena and four other communities began testing the program in June. It’s expected to go statewide later this month. Learn more about eWIC and how you can apply.

Health Department Awarded National Accreditation

Public Health Accreditation Board seal

Lewis and Clark Public Health was awarded accreditation in June by the national, nonprofit Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB). Only about 5 percent of local health departments in the country have achieved this recognition since PHAB launched its program in 2011. LCPH becomes only the 5th local health department in Montana to become accredited. Find out what this means for the department and for the community we serve.
