Description: Under the authority of Section 21(c) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (OSH Act), the U .S. Department of Labor (DOL) Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) established its discretionary grant program in 1978. In 1997, the program was renamed in honor of the late Susan Harwood, a former director of OSHA’s Office of Risk Assessment. The program offers an opportunity for nonprofit organizations to compete annually for funding so they may develop and conduct training and education programs for small business employers and workers on the recognition, avoidance, and prevention of occupational safety and health hazards in their workplaces, and to inform workers of their rights and employers of their responsibilities under the OSH Act. For FY 2017, OSHA announces the availability of approximately $10.5 million to fund new Susan Harwood Training Grants. OSHA expects to award multiple grants to eligible nonprofit organizations under this competitive Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA). Program funding will be for a 12-month period beginning no later than September 30, 2017, and ending on September 30, 2018. Grant awards will not exceed $155,000 for a Targeted Topic Training grant or $50,000 for a Training and Education Material Development grant.
