Agricultural Safety Coalition Offering Farm Safety Grants

Grants go to organizations seeking to promote evidence-based safety and health strategies to farmers, ranchers and ag workers

The Agricultural Safety and Health Council of America announced this month it is offering grants up to $10,000 to foster new champions of agricultural safety and health by providing financial support to promote evidence-based safety/health strategies addressing farmers, ranchers and agricultural workers.

The ASHCA is a national coalition of agribusinesses, producer organizations and safety professionals. This is the second round of safety grants; the first safety grants were offered in June. The 10 June grants addressed onsite safety training, development of a mobile app, personal protective equipment, safe play zones for farmworker children and other topics.

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