The Department of Health did not explain why it abandoned a plan to change who administers a nutrition program for pregnant people and young children.
In July 2019, Allegheny County was one of the first Pennsylvania counties to complete the transition from paper checks to electronic benefit cards. Since then, WIC participation among Allegheny County residents dropped about 6 percent.
