Safety Grants

At Missouri Employers Mutual, we don’t want funding to stand in the way of saving lives at work. That’s why we created the MEM Safety Grant program. The MEM Safety Grant program provides financial reimbursement for the purchase of approved products and equipment that can reduce or eliminate injuries and illness.

Program Details
MEM is offering successful applicants one-to-one matching grants from $1,000 to $20,000 toward approved safety initiatives. The MEM Safety Grant program is available to all MEM policyholders, regardless of claims history. There are two eight-week grant cycles per calendar year. The application periods for 2017 are:

  • Jan. 9-March 6
  • July 10-Sept. 7

MEM will:

  • Award safety grants for up to five items that each have a minimum service life of five years.
  • Arrange a Safety and Risk consultation if the requested grant amount is more than $10,000, or equal to or more than your annual premium.

See FAQs for further details and eligibility requirements.
