Ag health and safety

Paving the way for a safer future

As a core value, CHS puts the safety and well-being of people, customers and communities first every day. As part of that effort, the CHS Foundation provides funding for ag health and safety initiatives that provide training, equipment, and industry expertise to help keep farm families and rural communities safe. We’ve worked with industry partners like the Progressive Agriculture Foundation and AgriSafe to help over 32,000 youth learn ag safety lesson and assisted hundreds of communities with safety equipment and training.

Check out the criteria below to learn if your organization is a fit for funding.


Applications are accepted on a rolling basis throughout the year.

Ag safety and health initiatives that have a national approach or reach multiple states in the CHS geography will be considered.

Ag health and safety projects at the local level will only be accepted through the CHS Seeds for Stewardship cooperative matching grants program.

CHS Foundation will consider ag health and safety projects that:
  • Educate youth or farmer audiences about the dangers associated with working in agriculture.
  • Provide safety training to rural firefighters, farmers, ranchers or agribusiness professionals.
  • Develop safety guidelines for use on farms or agribusinesses.
  • Support the health and well being of farmers and ranchers.
