Calling all nonprofits – Susan Harwood Training Grant Program
Training programs are a necessary part of any organization to ensure employee safety. Unfortunately, this training can sometimes be costly and for nonprofit organizations it may interfere with the funds needed to support their mission. For nonprofits in this situation the Susan Harwood Training Grant Program is here.
This grant program was set in place to honor Susan Harwood, a woman who spent 17 years of her life as the director of Office of Risk Assessment in OSHA’s Health Standards Directorate. She spent her career developing OSHA standards that consequently saved the lives and reduced injuries of employees across the United States.
Any nonprofit organization that is not an agency of State or local government is eligible to receive funding, including community and faith-based organizations. But all applications are due Friday, July 24th, 2009 by 4:30 p.m. E.T.
