Safety grant program

Why should your organization apply for a safety grant?

Organizations that invest in safety are investing in their most valuable resource: their people. Pinnacol’s safety grant program provides financial assistance to nonprofit Pinnacol customers  that have identified a safety initiative that will address a safety risk or hazard but may lack the immediate resources to proactively or creatively address the hazard.

Grant funding can be used to purchase equipment or implement processes aimed at reducing employees’ exposure to health and safety hazards. 

This is an 80/20 matching grant program, with Pinnacol providing 80% of the funding for the safety initiative and 20% provided by the grant recipient. 

The average grant award ranges from $7,500-$10,000 per grantee.
