WorkWell Grant available for SD businesses!

The South Dakota Department of Health is pleased to announce the release of the 2019-2020 WorkWell Grant! The WorkWell Grant is an opportunity for your business to make environmental and policy changes that can help prevent, reduce, and manage chronic diseases for all employees.

  • Environmental change refers to the physical factors at and nearby the workplace that help protect and enhance employee health.
  • Health-related policies are formal or informal written statements that are designed to protect or promote employee health.

A ‘menu’ of nutrition, physical activity, tobacco-cessation, heart disease and stroke, and cancer-prevention interventions are listed in the application. Funding must be used to implement one or more interventions from this list. Eligible projects will be awarded up to $2,000. Workplaces starting a wellness program or expanding a current program are eligible to apply. All grant applications are due March 19, 2019.
