Every July, the Central Appalachian Regional Education and Research Center makes available funds for innovative pilot projects in occupational safety and health. Awards may range from $5,000 to $12,000 in total funds (direct plus indirect) and are typically available for short-term pilot studies of up to 12 months duration.
Generally, the CARERC will consider any well-designed research, education, or prevention/ intervention project addressing occupational safety and health concerns in mining, forestry and logging, manufacturing, transportation/trucking, law enforcement, and other hazardous sectors. However, priority will be given to proposals that address the needs of at-risk workers in one or more of 177 Central Appalachian counties. This includes rural counties in eastern Kentucky (54), western North Carolina (29), western Virginia (25), eastern Tennessee (50), and/or southern West Virginia (16).
