The U.S. Department of Labor's Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA) announced the availability of $1 million for training or training materials to support mine rescue or mine emergency preparedness in underground mines.

MSHA will evaluate applications and then award Brookwood-Sago mine safety grants in individual grants of at least $50,000 and up to $250,000.

For award consideration, applicants must be a public or private nonprofit 501(c) (3) organization to be eligible. Interested parties must submit their applications electronically at www.grants.gov by Aug. 29, 2015.
