The focus is on those whose income is less than 250% of the Federal Poverty Level. However, up to 25% of Wise Choices participants may have an income between 250% and 400% of Federal Poverty Level.
Currently Wise Choices is only available through the Health Department of Northwest Michigan and Washtenaw County Public Health.
