Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, including community and faith-based organizations, labor unions, employer associations, IHEs, and tribal entities to provide educational programs and training related to occupational safety. Required registrations may take more than five weeks to complete.

The Susan Harwood Training Grant Program funds eligible nonprofit organizations to develop and deliver training on the recognition, abatement, and prevention of occupational safety and health hazards in workplaces. When developing training, consider these four program emphasis areas:

  • Training disadvantaged, underserved, low-income, or other hard-to-reach, at-risk workers and employers;
  • Training that focuses on identifying and preventing occupational safety and health hazards in high-hazard industries;
  • Training on new OSHA standards; and
  • Training on workplace hazards identified in the DOL Strategic Plan, OSHA special emphasis program, or other OSHA priorities.

Grants awarded under this FOA will support the delivery of Targeted Topic Training. Proposals must emphasize delivering quality occupational safety and health training on one OSHA-specified topic. Proposals may include acquiring training materials, revising existing Susan Harwood training materials, or developing new training materials. Training must reach disadvantaged, underserved, low-income, or other hard-to-reach, at-risk workers and employers. For Targeted Training Audiences, see
