The FMCS is currently not accepting grant applications for FY 2012. No funding is available for FY 2012.
Objectives and Approach
The FMCS Grants Office was established in Fiscal Year 1981 under the authority of the Labor-Management Cooperation Act of 1978 (PL 95-524). The Office administers the Labor-Management Cooperation Program that provides grants to labor-management committees.
The committees funded under this program are not limited to any particular activity. Such committees in the past have focused their efforts on such goals as improving labor relations, increasing productivity and enhancing the quality of work life.
It is the intent of the Act that funds awarded under this program support efforts of employees and employers who are covered by a formal collective bargaining agreement.
