    Default Training Funding Opportunity for PA Agencies

    For those that may be interested:

    The PA Department of Agriculture Farm Safety and Occupational Health grant applications are now open for FY06-07. This program is available to public safety agencies within PA. Applications are due by 10/31/2005.

    The Small Grant Program provides up to $2,500 per eligible entity per year for:
    -Projects relating to the prevention or mitigation of farm accidents
    -Educational programs relating to agricultural equipment safety and first aid for farm youth
    -Farm safety day camps and demonstrations
    -Farm fire safety instruction
    -Training programs related to emergency response
    -Age-appropriate adult and farm worker training

    I have added links to my website for the grants. I am familiar with this grant program and can offer assistance and guidance on what these grant programs can be used for, etc. You can either email or post questions here.

    I will note one of the BIG differences with this grant program is that it is not just an equipment grant; some sort of related training is a required component of the potentially successful grant application.

    If there is no patient, it isn't a rescue. If you can't do patient care, you can't be a rescue. You are just a bunch of people with a tool.
