U.S. Department of Labor announces availability of $250,000 In Brookwood-Sago Grants for Mine Safety Education and Training
July 24, 2018

The U.S. Department of Labor’s Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) announced the availability of up to $250,000 in funding through its Brookwood-Sago grant program to support education and training to help identify, avoid, and prevent unsafe working conditions in and around the nation’s mines. Brookwood-Sago grants focus on powered haulage safety, examinations of working places at metal and nonmetal mines, or emergency prevention and preparedness.

Established by the Mine Improvement and New Emergency Response (MINER) Act of 2006, the program promotes mine safety while honoring 25 miners who died in 2001 in Brookwood, Alabama, at the Jim Walter Resources #5 mine, and in 2006 in Buckhannon, WV, at the Sago Mine.

Funding will enable grant recipients to develop training materials, provide mine safety training or educational programs, recruit mine operators and miners for the training, and conduct and evaluate the training. MSHA will give special emphasis to programs and materials that target workers at smaller mines, including training miners and employers about new MSHA standards, high-risk activities, or hazards identified by MSHA.

The minimum and maximum amounts of each individual grant are $50,000 and $250,000, respectively.

To submit a grant application, go to www.grants.gov.

The closing date for applications is Aug. 23, 2018. MSHA will award grants on or before Sept. 28, 2018. Additional information is available in the Federal Register here.
