By |  June 8, 2018

The Mine Safety & Health Administration (MSHA) will allot $10,537,000 in state grant funding to provide federally mandated training and retraining for miners and mine operators working at surface and underground coal and metal and nonmetal mines.

Under Section 503 of the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977, any state in which mining takes place may apply for the grant. According to MSHA, it can fund 80 percent of the activities under a state grant program, and the state must provide matching funds of no less than 20 percent of the total program costs.

Interested parties can submit applications for the grants here. The applications must be submitted electronically by July 16.
