HealthierCBP

CBP is committed to recognizing the importance of maintaining a physically fit and healthy workforce.  The HealthierCBP platform fosters a culture of wellness that encourages and promotes the well-being of our workforce through a variety of resources and programs.

Agency-Wide Physical Fitness Program

The Agency-Wide Physical Fitness Program (AWPFP) is available to all CBP employees and supports participation in approved physical activity during duty hours with supervisor approval. This program directly supports CBP's commitment to creating a healthy workforce where physical fitness is embraced as a critical element of mission readiness and personal resilience. Use of the program may vary slightly based upon employee's bargaining unit status.
