MSHA offering $1M in safety grants
Arlington, VA — The Mine Safety and Health Administration is accepting applications for its Brookwood-Sago Mine Safety Grants Program.
MSHA will provide up to $1 million in grant funding for states, territories, and private and public organizations to develop education and training programs “to help mine workers identify, avoid and prevent unsafe working conditions.”
Programs that focus on powered haulage will warrant special consideration, according to MSHA, which says in a press release that it will place “special emphasis” on programs and materials that target miners at smaller mines.
Individual grant amounts will range from $50,000 to $1 million.
The deadline to apply is May 27. The grants are scheduled to be awarded on or before Sept. 30.
