IPEP Pilot Grant Program
The Indiana Public Employers' Plan, Inc. (IPEP) is excited to announce our latest commitment to Safety and Risk Management. We are implementing a pilot IPEP Safety Grant Program to assist our members in stretching their resources. We want to help IPEP members maximize opportunities to promote a safe work environment.
IPEP is proud to partner with our members to enhance safety programs by providing a matching incentive up to 80% of the purchase price for safety equipment or safety training and programs, which will reduce or limit worker's compensation exposure.
We are accepting applications for the pilot program now through October 31, 2016. IPEP Safety Grant Program recipients will be announced by December 31, 2016 and grants will be awarded by January 31, 2017.
Thank you for your partnership,
Frank T. Short, IPEP President

If Indiana worker's compensation touches your professional world in any way, this 1 1/2 day conference will provide you with excellent networking and educational opportunities that will enhance your ability to effectively deal with the work comp issues you face on a daily basis.
