Purpose

This opportunity provides funding for new agricultural health and safety research, prevention, intervention, community outreach, and translation projects that have high likelihood of leading to more comprehensive projects or activities.

Proposed projects will be reviewed for feasibility and potential impact. Reviewers will consider agricultural health and safety priorities identified by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). See the review process section of the program website for a detailed list of NIOSH priorities.

Priority will be given to projects addressing unique farming populations (youth, migrant workers, women farmers), aging, pesticide and fertilizer use, mental health, and other new or emerging issues.

Two types of projects may be funded:

  1. Academic track projects by new academic/scientific investigators, graduate students, and those newly interested in agricultural safety and health research
  2. Community-based outreach and translation projects to test new and innovative outreach and educational methods that are designed to result in improved health and/or safety practices or enhanced service delivery by the applicant organization
