Income Maintenance – Health Care, Food Share, Family Planning Waiver

As a result of the State of Wisconsin 2011-2013 Biennial Budget, accessing Income Maintenance programs have changed.  Effective January 1, 2012, Iron County Economic Support staff joined a group of counties called the Northern Income Maintenance Consortium.  This means that eligibility and benefit determination will be managed by a team of Income Maintenance workers.


All calls, questions, and changes will now be processed through the call/change center or through the Internet website.
