Earlier this month, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) announced funding opportunities for Targeted Topic Training Grants, Training and Educational Materials Development Grants, and Capacity Building Grants. OSHA has made $10.5 million available for nonprofit organizations including community and faith-based organizations, employer associations, labor unions, joint labor/management associations, Indian tribes, as well as colleges and universities.
The grant program, also known as the Susan Harwood Training Grants, supports the creation of training and education programs for workers and employers on workplace safety and health hazards, responsibilities and rights. Target audiences include undeserved, low-literacy, and high-hazard industry workers and employers. Funding opportunities for grant opportunities are available through September 2, 2018. Organizations may apply online at www.grants.gov.
