Required documents

  • Hazard assessment:  A hazard assessment must address the hazards associated with the process or processes addressed by the grant project and provide specific recommendations associated with each item requested as part of the application.

  • Cost quotes:  Cost quotes must reflect the total number and cost of all items requested as part of the application. Cost quotes provided that describe costs associated with single items cannot be used as the basis of approval for multiple requested items, for example the provided quote identifies the cost of one ladder, but the application request is for three ladders. 

About the application process

  • Applications may be submitted any time. However, submitted applications are compiled and reviewed in two-month intervals, with submission deadline dates of Feb. 15, April 15, June 15, Aug. 15, Oct. 15 and Dec. 15.

  • After clicking "Apply online" above, you will need to obtain a personal identification number (PIN) and key code to access the online application. If you do not fully complete the application, the application can be saved and completed later using the PIN and key code to access your application. Note:  You will need a new PIN and key code for each application submitted.

  • You cannot copy and paste information into the application.

  • Attachments:  You will need to submit your application before you will be able to upload your vendor quotes, written hazard survey and other necessary documents.

  • The authorized person (on the application) is the person who will be responsible for signing the contract.

  • The employer contact (on the application) will receive all corresponding documentation, such as letters, contract and email correspondence from the safety grant coordinator.

  • After submitting your application, if the application is incomplete or more information is needed, we will contact you. At this point, do not purchase anything intended for grant money yet.

  • You will be notified of approval or denial for a safety grant, typically within two weeks after the submission deadline.

  • If you are approved, you will receive a letter and a contract that states the grant amount awarded and the items approved. A partial grant may be awarded if available funds are limited or specific items are denied.

  • The grantee must sign and email the contract back or decline the contract. A grantee signature alone is not a fully executed contract. After the safety grant coordinator receives the contract signed by the grantee, the safety grant coordinator will get two more signatures and then send the fully signed contract to the grantee with a letter stating the project end-date. At this point, the grantee has a fully executed contract and can start its project.

  • A certificate of completion form will also be included with the fully signed contract. When the project is complete, fill in the form and submit it with the required invoices and proof of payment, to the safety grant coordinator.

  • The safety grant coordinator will initiate the reimbursement process and send a letter notifying the grantee that payment is being processed.
