UBC’s favourite departmental funding program is back! Applications are now being accepted for the Healthy Workplace Initiatives Program (HWIP).
In support of UBC departments and units that are interested in promoting wellbeing in the workplace, the HWIP provides start-up funds for health-related activities. The program has previously funded grassroots initiatives such as yoga classes, health challenges, mental health training and creative activities.
In 2017, the HWIP funded the following in Vancouver and the Okanagan:
- Seven bike share programs
- Six fitness classes
- Six health challenges
- Four patio gardens
- Two mental health programs
- Two arts-based projects
- 12 innovative new ideas
Do you and your colleagues have a great idea for boosting the health and wellbeing of your team? Need a little financial assistance to supplement department resources? Consider applying today. Deadline for applications is April 18, 2018.
Full details, including regulations, funding toolkits and application forms can be found on the HWIP page.
