Susan Harwood Capacity Building Developmental and Capacity Building Pilot

Under the authority of Section 21(c) of the Occupational Safety and Health Act of 1970 (OSH Act), the U. S. Department of Labor (DOL) Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) established its discretionary grant program in 197 8. In 1997, OSHA renamed the program in honor of the late Susan

Harwood, former director of the OSHA Office of Risk Assessment.

The grant program offers opportunities for nonprofit organizations to compete annually for funding so they may develop and conduct training and education programs for small business employers and workers on the recognition, avoidance, and prevention of occupational safety and health hazards in their workplaces, and to inform workers of their rights and employers of their responsibilities under the OSH Act.

For FY 2018, OSHA announces the availability of approximately $ 4. 5 million to fund new Susan Harwood Training Program capacity building grants.

Susan Harwood Training Program grants are subject to the availability of federal funding and appropriations.

OSHA expects to award multiple grants to eligible nonprofit organizations under this competitive Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA).

Program funding is for a 12-month period beginning no later than September 30, 2018, and ending on September 30, 201 9. Two types for capacity building grant opportunities are available.

The maximum award for a Capacity Building Developmental grant is $165,000 and for a Capacity Building Pilot grant is $80,00 0. Organizations are restricted to one Susan Harwood Training grant award in a fiscal year.

If an organization submits multiple applications, OSHA will review the last complete and viable application package submitted.

Once submitted, applications are not available for additions, corrections, or revisions.

To make changes to a submitted application, the organization must submit a new application package.

Eligible nonprofit applicants include qualifying labor unions, community-based and faith-based organizations, and employer associations that are not an agency of a state or local government.

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. 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. Ineligible applicants are individuals, for profit organizations, 501(c)(4) nonprofit organizations, and FY 2017 Susan Harwood grantees with more than a 90-day time extension to their grant.
