Grants to North Carolina nonprofit organizations and government agencies for programs that promote breastfeeding as the preferred source of nutrition for infants and young children. Funding is intended to maintain training centers that help to improve the nutritional status of program participants. Preference is given to applicants that can coordinate statewide services in all regions for continuity and consistency of services, strong collaboration, and coverage across the state.

The goal of this project is to enhance statewide infrastructure between local WIC agencies and lactation support and health care providers who serve the WIC eligible population to improve the continuity of care through the implementation of coordinated services by developing formal referral systems.

The North Carolina Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children Lactation Area Training Centers for Health (WIC LATCH) will help assure that public health agency staff funded by the WIC Program and other health professionals serving the eligible population have routine and ready access to accurate, standardized, evidence-informed lactation management training, support services, and continuing education.

A core function of the project is to provide orientation training for WIC breastfeeding peer counselors and WIC-designated breastfeeding experts and continuing education for WIC breastfeeding peer counselors and their managers, WIC-designated breastfeeding experts, and other medical professionals serving the WIC eligible population.
