Introduction


The Safety Grant Program awards employers in the state of Minnesota a dollar-for-dollar match – up to $10,000 – to qualifying employers for projects designed to reduce the risk of injury and illness to their workers, based on results of an on-site, safety/health hazard survey. This is a reimbursement program. Invoices dated prior to the approved contract date are not eligible for this program. Grants are awarded to employers that best satisfy the Safety Grant Program goals. If the number of qualified applicants exceeds the available funds, applications are evaluated based on factors in the statutes and rules. 
(See www.dli.mn.gov/WSC/Grants.asp - Minnesota Rules 5203.0010-5203.0070.)

If your grant is approved, you will be notified in writing of the specific approval. Whether your grant application is approved or not in no way diminishes, delays or absolves you of any obligation to abate hazards as required by law. No state funds will be distributed until all grant documents are signed by all parties; funds expended before that must not rely on grant approval.

Priority will be given to projects that meet the other requirements for grants that support production jobs in an area or prevent loss of jobs due to safety problems. Also given priority are projects in industries that are the current focus of Minnesota OSHA compliance and consultation strategies. A list of priority industries can be found in the MNOSHA Consultation strategic plan at:   http://www.dli.mn.gov/WSC/PDF/strategic_plan14-18.pdf
