The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), invites grant applications for Training Project Grants (TPGs) that are focused on occupational safety and health training. NIOSH is mandated to provide an adequate supply of qualified personnel to carry out the purposes of the Occupational Safety and Health Act, and the TPGs are one of the principal means for meeting this mandate.
Essential Characteristics of NIOSH TPGs
- Needs Assessment - TPGs must document that their proposed training program(s) meet specific regional or national workforce needs and demands.
- Regional Presence - TPGs should demonstrate collaborative efforts by working with a diverse and broad range of organizations to enhance OSH training in their region. Advisory Committee - TPGs must have an Advisory Committee of three or more individuals who can provide guidance to the program’s leadership.
- Recruitment and Retention Plan to Enhance Diversity - NIOSH remains committed to increasing the participation of individuals from underserved and underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, as well as persons with disabilities, in OSH research and practice.
- Evaluation Plan - The application must describe an evaluation plan to review and determine the quality and effectiveness of the TPG.
- Essential Characteristics for Academic Training Programs - NIOSH will support high quality academic training programs and academic certificate programs in core OSH disciplines of Industrial Hygiene (IH), Occupational Health Nursing (OHN), Occupational Medicine Residency (OMR), and Occupational Safety (OS) and in closely related allied disciplines.
