Agricultural Safety Group Offering Grants Up to $10,000

Grants up to $10,000 are being offered by a national coalition of agribusinesses, producer organizations and safety professionals in order to foster new champions of agricultural safety and health.


The Agricultural Safety and Health Council of America (ASHCA) has announced an application deadline of January 7, 2015. Information regarding eligibility, priorities, application instructions and frequently asked questions is available at www.ashca.org.


ASHCA made its first-ever safety grants this past June. The 10 grants addressed onsite safety training, development of a mobile app, personal protective equipment, safe play zones for farmworker children and other topics.


“The applications were thoughtfully prepared and covered a number of topics related to ASHCA’s priorities, considering issues of national significance while acknowledging safety/health concerns of regional or commodity specific importance,” said Leon Graves, grants committee chair and vice-president of Dairy Marketing Services.


The purpose of the ASHCA Safety Grants Program is to provide financial support to promote evidence-based safety/health strategies addressing farmers, ranchers and agricultural workers.


Individuals, organizations and businesses can support ASHCA's Safety Grants program with financial contributions and/or "in-kind" support.
