The Public Employer Risk Management Association (PERMA), in partnership with the New York State Association of Chiefs of Police (NYSACOP), is pleased to announce the 2021 Awardees of our new Officer Wellness Grant Program. 

This Program provides financial assistance to PERMA and NYSACOP members in obtaining Cordico Shield, a customizable and confidential mobile wellness application for law enforcement officers. This mobile app offers a range of self-assessments, as well as, updated videos and guides on over 60+ behavioral health topics—all designed specifically for first responders. Additional information about Cordico Shield offerings can be found here.

PERMA has awarded the following agencies a grant to assist in a first-year subscription to Cordico Shield:

  • The Village of Baldwinsville Police Department
  • The Village of Elmira Heights Police Department
  • The Town of Geddes Police Department

Congratulations to these members and thank you to all those who submitted their application!

As we continue our Partnership with NYSACOP, applications for the Officer Wellness Grant Program will become available this Fall.
