Federal Grants Available for Worksite Wellness  

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has announced the availability of $10 million to establish and evaluate comprehensive workplace health promotion programs across the nation to improve the health of American workers and their families. Programs include allowing employees a more flexible schedule to make time for exercise, policies to reduce tobacco use and increase healthier food options in cafeterias and vending machines.

“It sends the right message about the power of employee health,” said Joe Moore, IHRSA President and CEO. “And it recognizes a too-often overlooked source for productivity and profitability, and that’s a healthy workforce.” You can find more information about the program at
