WASHINGTON — The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is soliciting applications for nearly $7 million in Susan Harwood Training Grants available to non-profit, community and faith-based organizations.
OSHA awards funds to provide training and education programs on safety and health topics for workers and their employers. For fiscal 2009, the program offers 24 targeted topic areas including crane safety, combustible dust, emergency preparedness and response and the OSHA recordkeeping process.
Training grants will be awarded for a 24-month performance period. Applications are due July 24, 2009.
Applications for grants must be submitted electronically using the government-wide www.grants.gov. Applicants can complete the mandatory online registration at any time; however, registration must take place before beginning the application process.
