"Prior to Cookeville’s recognition as a candidate to become a Healthier Tennessee Community, the foundation in September launched a grant program to help such locations achieve that status," Herald Citizen's Tracy Hackett reports.

"It’s a one-time $5,000 grant that must be used to sustain Healthier Tennessee Community efforts."

"In order to qualify for that grant, each participating community or location must have at least 50 percent of K-8 classrooms must be using the GoNoodle program to encourage more movement across curricula of all subjects."

"And at least 20 percent of all workplaces with 35 or more employees must sign up for its no-cost wellness program, Small Starts @ Work."
