Well-Being@Work Grants

Grants provide a funding source for materials to support well-being in the workplace.  These funds can be used for a specific work-location (with the caveat that the items being purchased must be able to benefit the majority of employees at the location).  Examples include blood pressure machines, exercise equipment and more.  



Apply for a Well-Being Grant

Grant applications require input from Champions, Department Leads, and a representative from your department's finance team.  Applications are accepted once a year, the 2019-20 deadline is August 30, 2019.


Step 1

Identify Requests
Champions, the Well-Being Department Lead and other stakeholders meet to discuss needs by work location. If there is no Department Lead for Well-Being, Champions can work directly with members of their management team.

Step 2

Involve Finance Staff
The Department Lead and/or Champion meets with financial staff to discuss the request. This is to confirm whether funding is available, to secure support for funding, or to purchase the request.

Step 3

Complete and Submit the Application
If you would like to discuss your application with a Well-being Coordinator, email well-being@sfgov.org or call (415) 554-0643.
