It's private.  No one will judge you.

Workplace Wellness Grant soon to be Available

The grant pays for 30% of wellness program costs for one year.
Each workplace can only apply once.
The expected timeline for this grant to become effective is late 2015 and a website will provide more information when it becomes available.

The application is simple and, at this point, has only 14 easy to answer questions, none which have to do with your business revenue.

The department proposes to grant 30% or $15,000 whichever is less, of allowable costs to applicants with complete applications for costs, except excluded costs, paid by small business in any 12 month period, within the grant funding period.  Grants may be awarded for expenses in the following categories:
  • Personnel/Staff Time
  • 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:
