Each year Iowa’s Center for Agricultural Safety and Health designates funds for community grants targeted at the prevention of farm-related injury in young people and their families. Typically a total of up to $5000 is awarded to projects that can decrease the risk of illness and injury from agricultural exposures to youth living or working on Iowa farms. Over $75,000 in grants has been awarded to 77 Iowa organizations since 1998.
