To promote state, regional, and national collaboration (to include tribal nations, academic institutions, and NGOs) to increase capacity building for occupational safety and health (OSH) programs and surveillance.

For this NOFO, based on a set of objectives (see objectives section under 2.0 Approach), the recipient will conduct communication, education, and translational practice through a mix of approaches and strategies. The recipient is expected to be a national leader for coordination and collaboration of OSH surveillance and communications for the United States, and in coordination with federal and state agencies. Examples include the operation of an open-access online repository for occupational safety and health information and surveillance data and resources.
