The funds are available for nonprofit organizations (including community and faith-based organizations, employer associations, labor unions, joint labor/management associations, Indian tribes, colleges and universities). The program supports the creation of in-person, hands-on training and educational programs. The grants will fund training and education for workers and employers to help them identify and prevent workplace safety and health hazards.

The three grants available include:

- Targeted Topic Training grants to support the development of quality training and educational programs in specific safety and health hazards designated by OSHA in the grant announcement.

- Training and Educational Materials grants to support the development of quality classroom-ready training and educational materials.

- Capacity Building grants to support organizations in developing new ability for conducting occupational safety and health training programs. There are two types of Capacity Building grants including:

o Capacity Building Pilot grants assist organizations in assessing their training and development needs as they formulate a capacity-building plan before moving forward with a full-scale safety and health education program

o Capacity Building Developmental grants focus on developing new capacity of an organization to provide safety and health training and education (with the opportunity to continue building their new capacity with up to three additional 12-month follow-on grants, based on satisfactory performance)
