Prevention Wellness Trust Fund Employment

The Prevention Wellness Trust Fund program is seeking Community Health Workers who wish to support community-based partnerships in providing research-based health interventions. 


With the establishment of the Prevention and Wellness Trust Fund, the Massachusetts Legislature set forth a challenge to communities across the Commonwealth: reduce health care costs by preventing chronic conditions. Berkshire County was awarded a PWTF grant that benefits numerous local organizations, as described below. 

The Trust supports community-based partnerships including municipalities, healthcare systems, businesses, regional planning organizations, and schools. These groups work together to provide research-based interventions that will: 

  • Reduce rates of the most prevalent and preventable health conditions
  • Increase healthy behaviors
  • Increase the adoption of workplace-based wellness or health management programs
  • Address health disparities

If you wish to apply for one of the available Community Health Worker positions, instructions are as follows: 

Step 1: Review full job description
