The JPIA Wellness Grant Program is intended to help agencies participating in JPIA
medical plans to establish a wellness program or carry out a wellness initiative. It
should take a holistic approach considering safety efforts, wellness and available health
benefits. The program is meant for all employees, regardless of the medical plan in which
they are enrolled. The program can be big or small, limited in duration or ongoing. The
idea is to get started thinking about how employers can make small efforts that help
employees improve health. Not only do healthier employees (and healthier dependents)
result in lower medical premiums, but reduced absenteeism, reduced instances of workplace
injury, increased morale and increased productivity are all benefits as well.
