2018 Cities for Workforce Health Application

We are pleased to announce that our application for 2018 consulting is now open. You can begin completing your application online at your convenience:


DUE DATE: Friday, August 11, 2017

A few things to note:

Please complete the application to the best of your ability. It should take you about 30 minutes to do so. You must complete the application online at: www.surveymonkey.com/r/2018CWHgrant, and you must complete the application in one session.  Be sure to hit submit once you have completed all answers.

We are providing you a word document version of the application for reference and so that you can be prepared to answer all questions. As you go through, you will follow along in sequential order. If an answer you select tells you to skip ahead to a specified question, then the online survey application will skip ahead automatically for you. The application is built with survey logic so that you get questions that are most appropriate to your city, based on the answers that you provide. You can find the word version of the application here.

Selection criteria:

A grant review committee composed of representatives from the CWH partners will review and evaluate all applications. Five cities will be selected, based on the following criteria:
  • Demonstration that a basic wellness program infrastructure is currently in place (e.g. leadership team or steering committee has been formed; wellness champions have been identified; and/or a survey or assessment of health needs/risks has been conducted)
  • Readiness to initiate or further develop a worksite wellness program
  • Commitment to building the program’s infrastructure and capacity
  • Need for professional consultation to assist with program development efforts

Overall, cities that meet the award criteria and demonstrate the greatest need for consultation and program support will be selected.  In addition, the Review Committee aims to balance the selection of awardees based on geographic location (northern, central, and southern California) and size of employee population.

Previous grantees are encouraged to apply again if the City's wellness program evolved and there is a new need for consultation. Preference may be given to first-time awardees.

The Cities for Workforce Health Program is sponsored by the League Partner Program of the League of California Cities, including Kaiser Permanente, Keenan, and the HEAL Cities Campaign.
