Empower Program

Resources & Policies

Facilities participating in the Empower Program pledge to adopt 10 standards that support healthy eating, encourage active play, prevent exposure to second- and third-hand smoke, practice sun safety and promote good oral health habits in exchange for reduced licensing fees. Benefits of participating in Empower include reduced licensing fees, a state-issued Empower facility designation, an Empower Pack of ready-to-use resources, and an Empower Guidebook.
