The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) is offering up to $6,000 to Missouri employers interested in initiating or improving workplace wellness policies and programs and making sustainable changes that support employee health at their workplace.
A comprehensive and well-run wellness program can reduce absenteeism, improve productivity, control health care costs, reduce injuries, and improve employee morale. These programs are designed by employers and often focus on areas related to wellness such as nutrition, physical activity, mental health, and tobacco cessation.
A mini grant could help fund the creation of a new worksite program or improve an existing worksite wellness program in your office. Employers with 10 to 99 employees may apply for up to $4,000, and employers with 100 or more employers may apply for up to $6,000.
To apply, complete the application and budget, and submit by December 1, 2020 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please call 573.522.2820 with any questions. Awardees will be notified within 30 days of the application due date.
