The purpose of the ASHCA Safety Grants Program is to encourage and provide financial support for agricultural safety and health interventions at the local and/or regional level in order to facilitate timely application of evidence-based safety/health strategies to protect agricultural workers.
With a theme of “strengthening partnerships for safety” the priority for ASHCA’s grants are:
a)Programs that engage both management and workers in the planning and implementation of successful injury reduction programs.
b) "Hands-on" training initiatives that will increase workers' adoption of proven safety practices and be sustained beyond the grant period.
c) Initiatives that reach under-served or high-risk populations, e.g., non-English speaking workers.
Individuals, organizations and businesses can support ASHCA's Safety Grants program with financial contributions and/or "in-kind" support.
