HANNIBAL, Mo. — The North East Community Action Corporation is offering free diapers to income-qualifying parents of babies in 12 Missouri counties.

Diapers are available at NECAC Service Centers in Lewis, Lincoln, Macon, Marion, Monroe, Montgomery, Pike, Ralls, Randolph. St. Charles, Shelby and Warren counties.

In addition to qualifying by income, clients must make an appointment for a NECAC intake assessment, take a life skills class and meet other guidelines.

“With baby formula still hard to find in some areas and inflation continuing to take a bite out of people’s pocketbooks, we hope this diaper program will help lower-income parents be able to use the savings for other needs,” NECAC county services programs director Linda Fritz said in a press release. “It’s one less worry. We urge parents with infants to give us a call and make an appointment.”

The program follows the distribution of free meat by NECAC in eight counties with cold storage capability. Funding for both comes from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act.
