Harwood Training Grants Return
Used to offer support for in-person, hands-on training for both employers and employees, the grant program funds small businesses and industries with high rates of injury, illness, and fatality.
It is also available for vulnerable workers who are underserved, such as temporary workers or those with limited English proficiency.
Last year’s preliminary budget for FY 2019 cited the grants as “unnecessary and unproven.”
However, on May 3, OSHA announced that the program, which has been in place since 1978, is a go.
Who May Apply?
Employer associations, labor unions, joint labor/management associations, nonprofit organizations, Indian tribes, and colleges and universities may apply for Harwood training grants.
They are available in three areas:
- Targeted Topic Training Grants: These support educational programs that focus on identifying and preventing workplace hazards. Applicants must conduct training on OSHA-designated workplace safety and health hazards.
- Training and Educational Materials Development Grants: These support the development of classroom training and education materials that focus on identifying and preventing workplace hazards.
- Capacity Building Grants: These support organizations in creating more capacity for conducting workplace safety and health training programs. The grants provide training and education based on the identified needs of a specific audience.
Harwood training grants provide employers with the resources they need to prioritize workplace health and safety.
Applications must be submitted online no later than 11:59 p.m. EDT on Tuesday, July 2, 2019.
