Home / Cumberland County Department of Public Health WIC CIAO Project


Cumberland County Department of Public Health’s (CCDPH) project aims to raise awareness of WIC and reduce barriers to participation for families on the Fort Bragg Army installation and military community in Cumberland County.

CCDPH will use community-level data and innovative food access partnerships to amplify outreach and effectively reduce barriers.

Through a unique community coalition, Fort Bragg Public Health Partnership, CCDPH will work alongside Fort Bragg Department of Public Health, the University of North Carolina (UNC) Gillings School of Global Public Health, and the UNC Lineberger Comprehensive Cancer Center to identify WIC messaging that is relevant for military staff and develop processes for enrollment and engagement in WIC.

The project work could be used as a model to support WIC-eligible military families throughout the U.S.
