How funds can be used

Funds may be used for ergonomic, safety, disease and illness prevention and industrial hygiene equipment to reduce or eliminate workplace injuries and illnesses.

The grant may not be used toward salaries, wages, internal labor, the cost of preparing the application or equipment or materials needed to perform a job.

Application process

When applications open, this page will be updated with a link to apply. Policyholders will be directed to log in to their TMO account to access the application. In the application, you will be asked to share:

  • Your contact information
  • The number of full-time, part-time and temporary employees at your company
  • The type and cost of equipment your business is planning to purchase with grant funds
  • A brief description of how the equipment will improve safety

Your application will be sent to Texas Mutual’s review committee. You will receive an email informing you of acceptance or denial within four weeks of submission.

Once grants open at 8 a.m. CDT on July 9, an application link will be available at the top of this page. If you are a Texas Mutual policyholder, you will be able to apply through your TMO account. Depending on customer volume, you may be placed in a virtual line to wait for your turn to apply.

The application will ask several questions, such as how many people the business employs, how the grant will improve safety and health, which items the business intends to purchase and how much the items cost.

Only one contact per company can submit an application. Once an application is started, it must be completed under the same email address. You will receive a confirmation email once your application has been submitted. Texas Mutual will complete a review within four weeks and send you another email informing you of acceptance or denial.

Yes, you can apply for a grant on behalf of multiple businesses, but you will need to use a separate TMO account(s) to do so. Only one grant application is permitted for each unique email address and TMO account. Once an application is started, it must be completed under the same email address.
