Grant recipients will use the money to provide federally mandated training to workers in surface and underground coal mines and other types of mines.

The grants are administered by state mine inspectors' offices, state departments of labor, and state-supported colleges and universities. Training is tailored to the needs of area miners, including hazards they may encounter on the job.

Some states also use the grants to support their mine emergency response efforts.
