State Grants Programs

What is the purpose of the MSHA State Grants Program?

MSHA's State Grants Program distributes federal grants to 49 States and the Navajo Nation. Grants are made to the state agency program responsible for miners' health and safety. Most grant funds are used to support health and safety training courses and programs designed to reduce mining accidents, injuries, and illnesses.

Arrangements can be made to receive Part 46 and Part 48 training by contacting the grant program office within the state where your mining operation is located. Access a list of State Grant Participants and contact information here.
