2021 Grant Application Process

We are pleased to announce that the Cities for Workforce Health (CWH) application for 2021 program grants is now open. You can begin completing your application online at your convenience. 

DUE DATE: Friday, August 14

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. Answers must be provided in one session, meaning you cannot return to a closed session to pick up where you left off. Be sure to hit submit once you have completed all answers.

Click here for a pdf version of the application for reference and so that you can be prepared to answer all questions. We encourage you to use this document to prep your answers so that you can most quickly and easily submit the information online.
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.
For technical assistance in completing the survey or help with the application process, please contact Jennifer Castillo Jennifer.J.Castillo@kp.org.

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 has evolved and there is a new need for consultation. Preference may be given to first-time awardees.
