2013 Healthy Communities Grant Program
An Initiative of the USCM and Weight Watchers International, Inc.
The United States Conference of Mayors (USCM) and Weight Watchers International, Inc. are pleased to collaborate on a new Healthy Communities Grant Program, a pilot initiative designed to help communities foster healthy lifestyles and support community-based solutions to the rising obesity epidemic.
Three cities will be selected to have the opportunity to build upon their existing healthy lifestyle programming by receiving steeply discounted Weight Watchers memberships for local residents who qualify based on health status and financial need. The total retail value of all memberships offered is up to $1 million. Each of the three cities also will receive a $25,000 grant to administer their program and build capacity to ensure its success.*
