Are you ready to start programming with Steps to Health? If you have already determined your site’s eligibility with our team and chosen what programs you would like to conduct in your county, please review the Steps to Health Program Request Form link. This request form must be completed for each program you wish to conduct.

For example, if you have three 3rd Grade classrooms at ABC Elementary, you must complete one request form to receive the resources you need to conduct those three 3rd Grade programs at that site. If you have a Kids Club program at ABC Elementary as well, you will have to create a separate request form for that program to receive the resources you need. Also, if you conduct the same, or different, types of programs at the same site in different months or times, you must complete a Program Request Form a minimum of two weeks before the projected start to receive your resources.

After completing this form, your information will be sent to our team members for processing and you will be contacted once we have your information in our database. Supplies, Materials, Data Links and any other resources will be sent to you within 2 weeks of completing this form. For any questions, concerns or inquiries, please contact us at
