The PHIT Act and PEP Program are two vital pieces of US Legislation which will help create a more active, fit and healthy America. We need to reduce and prevent health care costs by having a more fit and healthy society.
The PHIT Act, HR1218, when passed, will give Americans an incentive to exercise, get fit and stay healthy by using pre-tax medical accounts to reduce the cost of being physically active. The PEP Program helps rebuild and support physical education programs throughout the USA. Grants are given directly from the U.S. Department of Education to local schools and community based programs. PEP is the only money in the entire Department of Education’s budget for physical education. Learn more at our website.
