Agricultural Safety and Health Council of America: Safety GrantsDeadline: January 7, 2015
The purpose of the Agricultural Safety and Health Council of America (ASHCA) Safety Grants Program is to encourage and provide financial support for agricultural safety and health interventions at the local and/or regional level in order to facilitate timely application of evidence-based safety/health strategies to protect agricultural workers. The priority for ASHCA’s 2015 grants are projects that:
- engage both management and workers in the planning and delivery of safety
- facilitate new partnerships for providing timely, effective safety programs
- reach out to stakeholders that have limited access to safety programs
- implement evidence-based, agricultural safety and health strategies
- have the potential for being sustained following the grant period
Amount: Up to $10,000 per award.
Eligibility: Applicants are expected to be engaged in agriculture-related production, education/training and/or research. The key contact (principal) will generally meet one or more the following criteria: farm/agribusiness owner; agricultural organization representative; agricultural community-based organization or service leader; agribusiness risk manager or safety advisor; safety or public health academic instructor; and/or an agricultural youth organization representative. Membership in ASHCA is not a requirement but is encouraged. Preference is given to organizations and projects that do not receive Federal grants.
