Each workplace can only apply once.

  • Health Risk Assessment
  • Education Programs
  • Behavior change programs (campaigns, challenges, etc.)
  • Equipment
  • Incentives (cash, prizes, etc.)
  • Contracted services
Normal costs for a comprehensive workplace wellness program average about $300 per employee. 
 
One time grants for up to 30% of the costs, excluding amount paid to acquire, construct, rehabilitate, remodel, or repair real property, paid during the year, to provide for its employees, a workplace wellness program, as a health or fitness program than includes health risk assessments and one or more or the following programs or services:
