working conditions in and around mines.

The focus of these grants for Fiscal Year (FY) 2023 will be on:
occupational hazards caused by exposures to respirable dust and crystalline silica, powered haulage and mobile equipment safety, mine emergency preparedness, mine rescue, electrical safety, contract and customer truck drivers, lack of training for new and inexperienced miners (including managers and supervisors performing mining tasks), pillar safety for underground mines, lack of personal protective equipment (including falls from heights), and other programs to ensure the safety and health of miners.

MSHA is interested in supporting programs emphasizing training on miners’ statutory rights, including the right to be provided a safe and healthy working environment (including Part 90 miners), to refuse an unsafe task, and to have a voice in the safety and health conditions at the mine.

MSHA shall give special emphasis to programs and materials that target smaller mines and underserved mines and miners in the mining industry, and prioritize diversity, equity, inclusion, and accessibility.

Applicants for the grants may be states, territories, and tribal governments (this includes the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and Federally recognized tribes) and private or public nonprofit entities (this includes tribal organizations, Alaska Native entities, Indian-controlled organizations serving Native Americans and Native Hawaiians).

MSHA could award as many as 20 grants.

The minimum amount of each individual grant will be at least $50,000 and the maximum amount will be up to $1,000,00 0.
