The U.S. Department of Labor (DOL), Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA), is making up to $250,000 available in grant funds for education and training programs to help identify, avoid, and prevent unsafe working conditions in and around mines. The focus of these grants for Fiscal Year (FY) 2018 will be training and training materials on powered haulage safety, examinations of working places at metal and nonmetal mines, or mine emergency prevention and preparedness. Applicants for the grants may be States and Territories (to include the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands) and private or public nonprofit entities, to include Indian tribes, tribal organizations, Alaska Native entities, Indian-controlled organizations serving Indians, and Native Hawaiian organizations. MSHA could award as many as 5 grants. The amount of each individual grant will be at least $50,000 and the maximum individual award will be $250,000. In addition, GSA has implemented new procedures for the System for Award Management (SAM) registration process to prevent fraud. These procedures, as of April 27, 2018, require new entities and entities renewing or updating their registration to submit an original, signed notarized letter confirming the authorized Entity Administrator before the SAM registration will be active. All applicants need an active SAM registration to apply for the grant under this FOA and should plan accordingly because these procedures may increase the time before an applicant may receive an active registration notice. This notice contains all of the information needed to apply for grant funding.
