Training Assistance

With grant funding from the New York State Department of Health, monies are available in 2019-2020 to support the training of YMCA staff as Healthy Heart Ambassador Instructors and Program Managers for the Blood Pressure Self-Monitoring Program; and Enhance®Fitness Instructors.

YMCA staff must register for the course or the event in LCDC. Completing the Training Funding Application will not hold a spot in the course or event. This funding is specifically to cover the cost of the registration fee for the course; travel and lodging is not covered. Each event and each staff member require its own application, even if you have previously approved.

Applications will be reviewed by the New York State YMCA Foundation and the staff member will be notified via email within two weeks of the application submission.

After the course or event, the Alliance will confirm with the New York State Training Partner YMCA that the staff member completed the course or event. YMCA Associations will then receive a reimbursement check in the mail within 90 days. Checks will not be made out to the name of the staff member. They must be made out to the YMCA Association.
