VHFA wins worksite wellness recognition

VHFA received a worksite wellness award from the Vermont Governor's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports.

The award was announced March 29 at the Worksite Wellness Conference at the Sheraton Hotel & Conference Center.

VHFA received the award for the walking and stair climbing programs it implemented last year.

VHFA wellness program reaches finish line

start logoVHFA's spring wellness program has just wrapped up.

Since mid-April, 17 staff members have been tracking their physical activity online as part of the American Heart Association's Start! program.

All told, we logged 3.84 million steps — the equivalent of 1,920 miles.

Essential maintenance reminder for multifamily properties

VHFA will start requiring multifamily properties provide proof property owners/managers have filed annual compliance statements with the Vermont Department of Health regarding essential maintenance practices (EMP).

In an effort to reduce exposure to harmful lead, owners and managers must complete EMP in all rental housing built before 1978 and file annual compliance statements with the Vermont Department of Health.

VHFA staff gets Start!'ed

VHFA has partnered with the American Heart Association for Start! — a physical activity initiative to fight heart disease and stroke through workplace walking programs.

Now through June 25, staff members will be able to track their physical activity online. The Agency will also set goals for staff to try and meet as a team.

VHFA pays kudos to "stairmasters"

VHFA wrapped up its spring wellness program Friday. For the past four weeks, staffers have been logging the number of steps they climb during the course of the work day.

Collectively, participants climbed 5,510 flights — 53 percent more than our last stairs program in 2008.
