The purpose of the IHW grant is to provide workplaces with funding and technical assistance for health focused activities and programs that benefit the wellness of employees and their families. The Division of Nutrition and Physical Activity (DNPA) prioritizes health equity* in our funding for initiatives in all settings. Therefore, workplaces that reside in, or serve communities that rank high (.5 and above) on the CDC’s Social Vulnerability Index, will be prioritized for funding.
*The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation defines health equity as "… everyone has a fair and just opportunity to be as healthy as possible. This requires removing obstacles to health such as poverty, discrimination, and their consequences, including powerlessness and lack of access to good jobs with fair pay, quality education and housing, safe environments, and health care."
Funded requests should demonstrate the ability to promote wellness in the workplace through healthy lifestyle choices, increased physical activity, improved breastfeeding strategies, and/or reduced stress. This grant will fund initiatives from October 1st, 2021 through September 30th, 2022. The DNPA aims to support sustainable projects that will last beyond the life of the grant funding. We will not fund chair massages, equipment without any effort of lifestyle-change strategies, one-time events, treadmill desks, food, or retreats.

63% of people in their twenties want to be their own boss, according to a 2013 University of Phoenix study. And while it’s arduous work, the lure of the freelance and entrepreneurial culture these days is incredibly strong. Some people are called to it with a unique idea or talent, while others spend years mulling over what kind of business they want to start.
It always surprises me when people are more in love with the idea of “a business” than “the business.” Many these days know they want to be entrepreneurs long before they have the idea that will help them become one. But if you’re ready, here’s how you can begin your path to business ownership.
