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.
