The Missouri Breastfeeding Friendly Worksite Program is a state-wide initiative to increase employer support for breastfeeding mothers. The Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS) is offering up to $500 to a limited number of Missouri employers to create or improve their lactation support policies and programs.
For example, funds may be used on:
- Locks on doors
- Privacy screens/partitions
- Comfortable chair
- Table or other flat surface to hold a breast pump
To be eligible to receive a mini-grant, the employer must submit their breastfeeding support policy which must be in compliance with the breastfeeding support requirements from the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA). To apply, complete the attached application and submit by December 30, 2015 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please contact 573-522-2820 with any questions.
