The U. S. Department of Labor (DOL), Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is soliciting applications from nonprofit organizations for grants to provide training and educational programs for workers and/or employers.
Nonprofit organizations, including qualifying labor unions, community-based
and faith-based organizations, and employer associations, that are not an agency of a state or local government, are eligible to apply.
Indian tribes, tribal organizations, Alaska Native entities, Indian-controlled organizations serving Indians, and Native Hawaiian organizations are eligible to apply in accordance with Executive Order 1317 5. Additionally, state or local government-supported institutions of higher education are eligible to apply in accordance with OMB 2 CFR 200 and DOL exceptions in 2 CFR 290 0. Grants are awarded under Section 21 of the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSH Act) to provide training and education programs for workers and employers on the recognition, abatement, and prevention of safety and health hazards in the workplace, and to inform workers of their rights and employers of their responsibilities under the OSH Act.
