(WASHINGTON, D.C.) - The U.S. Department of Labor’s Mine Safety and Health Administration has announced the availability of more than $10.5 million in Fiscal Year 2022 State Grant Funding to provide Federally-mandated training and retraining of Miners and Mine Operators working at surface and underground coal and metal and non-metal mines.

Any State in which mining takes place may apply for the grant.

MSHA may fund 80% of the program costs under a State Grant and the State must provide at least 20% of the total program costs.

The closing date for applications is July 25th, 2022.

MSHA will award grants on or before September 30th, 2022.

MSHA recognizes State Training Programs are a key source of Mine Safety and Health Training and education for individuals who work or will work at mines.

MSHA encourages State Training Programs to prioritize training for small mining operations and underserved mines and miners within the Mining Industry.

The agency also emphasizes training on Miners’ Statutory Rights provided in the Federal Mine Safety and Health Act of 1977, as amended.
