Cities and townships have a unique role in supporting healthy communities when implementing master and comprehensive plan strategies. Funds will be awarded to a city or township that is implementing or expanding opportunities for their residents to be physically active by implementing related Comprehensive and/or Master Plan strategies.

Worksite Wellness

Many employers have realized the value of investing in their employees’ well-being. Healthy employees save the employer health care dollars, use less sick time and are more productive at work. SHIP funds will be awarded to aid worksites with the goal of building a comprehensive worksite wellness initiative. This includes organizational planning and specific focus areas of healthy eating, physical activity, tobacco-free environments, well-being and breastfeeding support.

Thank you for your interest. Applications for 2021-21 funding will be accepted starting on November 15, 2021. More information coming soon. 

Healthy Eating
Accordion Image

Eating right is easier with healthy food options close at hand. Living Healthy in Washington County supports organizations working to increase access, availability, and selection of healthier foods. The priority populations for funding are those who live in communities where there are higher than average rates of heart disease, stroke, cancer and diabetes, as well as those who live in communities where there are significant barriers to accessing healthy food options due to factors such as low income, scarcity of food outlets, or lack of adequate transportation.

Thank you for your interest. Applications for the next funding cycle will open on January 10, 2022.
