Designed to help cities engage their employees in a culture of health, the program is sponsored by the League Partner Program of the League of California Cities, including Kaiser Permanente, Keenan, and the HEAL Cities Campaign.
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; and
- 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.
