Grants to fund employer health programs

Thurston County employers may apply for funding to support employee health and wellness programs.

The county has received a grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office on Women’s Health to support employers interested in completing projects that create better access to healthy eating or physical activity at work and promoting those options to employees.

Applications can be picked up at the Thurston County Health Department at 412 Lilly Road N.E. in Olympia or downloaded from the county Web site at
