Purpose

This opportunity provides funding for community-based nonprofit organizations that are working to prevent agricultural injury and illness through training and educational campaigns.

Community-based outreach and translation projects should develop, implement, and test innovative, evidence-based interventions and outreach/ educational programs with an emphasis on the practical application of agricultural health and safety knowledge among agricultural producers for the purpose of preventing agricultural illness and injury.

Priority will be given to projects addressing stress and mental health; chemical safety; and prevention of slips, trips, falls, and other traumatic injuries.

Applications from under-represented racial and ethnic groups as well as individuals with disabilities are especially encouraged.

  • Units of local or state government and eligible federal agencies
  • Units of local and state tribal government

Proposals for a pilot project from outside of the region will be accepted if the proposals address agricultural safety and health issues of relevance to agricultural workforces within the upper U.S. Midwest.
