$2.75 Million in Susan Harwood Training Grants Up for Grabs

OSHA is soliciting applications for $2.75 million in Susan Harwood Targeted Topic Training Grants to provide training and education programs on safety and health for workers and their employers. For fiscal year 2010, the program offers 28 targeted topic areas including crane safety, combustible dust, maritime, oil and gas, and eye safety.

"These grants will provide workers and employers with the tools they need to create targeted training programs to ensure safe workplaces," said Assistant Secretary of Labor for OSHA Dr. David Michaels. "These grants will enable workers to gain the knowledge and tools they need to save lives and protect their health."

Training grants will be awarded for a 12-month performance period. Applications are due Aug. 6, 2010.

A notice about these grants is published in the July 6 Federal Register at http://s.dol.gov/3T. The complete solicitation for grant applications is available at www.grants.gov. Applicants can complete the mandatory online registration at any time; however, registration must take place before beginning the application process. Applicants are encouraged to complete registration as soon as possible, as the process takes multiple days to complete. Grant applications must be received electronically no later than 11:59 p.m. EDT on Aug. 6. No extensions of the deadline will be granted, the agency said.

OSHA recently published a separate solicitation for the Susan Harwood Capacity Building Training Grants available under Funding Opportunity No. SHTG FY-10-01. That solicitation closed July 2.

Questions from the public regarding this announcement should be directed to [email protected] or Linda Vosburgh at telephone number 847-759-7700. More information on the Susan Harwood Training Grant Program is available on OSHA's website at www.osha.gov/dte/sharwood/index.html.
