$500,000 in Mine Safety Training Grants Offered

The FY 2010 Brookwood-Sago grants will fund mine emergency preparedness and mine emergency prevention training programs and training materials for underground mines.

As many as 10 mine safety training grants of at least $50,000 each will soon be awarded by MSHA, which announced their availability last Friday. The closing date for grant applications is Aug. 18 at 11:59 p.m. EDT. With a total of $500,000 for the FY 2010 Brookwood-Sago grant program available, applicants requesting less than $50,000 or more than $500,000 will not be considered for funding, MSHA said.

This is Funding Opportunity Number SGA 10-3BS. The Mine Safety and Health Administration said the grants will fund mine emergency preparedness and mine emergency prevention training programs and training materials for underground mines. The grants will be awarded on or before Sept. 30.

To submit an application electronically, visit www.grants.gov. Questions regarding SGA 10-3BS should be directed to Robert Glatter at glatter.robert@dol.gov or 202-693-9570, or to Grant Officer Darrell A. Cooper at cooper.darrell@dol.gov or 202-693-9831.

The discretionary grant program was created by the MINER Act, mine safety reform legislation that was enacted into law after several mine accidents. One was a Jan. 2, 2006, methane explosion in sealed areas that killed 12 miners and injured another miner at Wolf Run Mining Co.'s Sago Mine in Tallmansville, W.Va. Investigations determined lightning was the most likely ignition source.
