Applicants for the grants may be states and nonprofit (private or public) entities.  The number of grants awarded will be determined by MSHA’s evaluation of grant applications. The amount of each individual grant will be at least $50,000.00. The maximum amount for a 12-month period of performance is $250,000. MSHA may award both annual and renewal (two-year) grants.
