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. The safety grant program supports Pinnacol nonprofit policyholders 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.

The Pinnacol Assurance safety grant program provides financial assistance to nonprofit Pinnacol policyholders that would like to address a history of workers’ compensation claims by focusing on resolving a specific workplace safety risk. 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 percent of the funding for the safety initiative and the remaining 20 percent provided by the grant recipient. The average grant award is between $7,500 to $10,000 per grantee.
