The Vermont Department of Health has recently released a request for proposals for a funding opportunity to promote worksite wellness at small workplaces. These Working Toward Wellness grants will support the development of worksite wellness programs to promote physical activity and nutrition initiatives for employees. Six grants in the amount of $3,000 each are available this year. In addition to funding, worksites will be partnered with local health department staff for ongoing technical assistance and support. To be eligible, worksites must have fewer than 100 employers and must not have an existing wellness program. This year, we are funding worksites in the following district areas: Barre, Rutland, St. Albans, St. Johnsbury, Springfield, and White River Junction.
The deadline for applications is July 15th, 2016.
