Federal Funding Disclosure (Stevens Amendment)

The Stevens Amendment1 is a federal law that requires funding information be included on all state and local government projects or programs using federal funds.

This web page lists how the California Department of Industrial Relations (DIR) uses federal grant money to fund its work.

Division of Occupational Safety and Health

DIR’s Division of Occupational Safety and Health (Cal/OSHA) State Plan program receives federal funding from two grants, the 23(g) and 21(d). For Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2020, Cal/OSHA received a grant of $26,563,600 in federal funds from 23(g), which constitutes 29.1% of the State Plan budget for enforcement.

The California On-Site Consultation program is funded by a 21(d) cooperative agreement for $5,526,300 federal funds, which constitutes 46 percent of the program budget for consultation services.

The remaining costs for both the State Plan program and the On-Site Consultation program were funded by other non-federal government resources.

Labor Commissioner’s Office

DIR’s program for the Labor Commissioner’s Office (Division of Labor Standards Enforcement) receives federal funding from the 23(g) grant for its retaliation complaint investigation activities. For Federal Fiscal Year (FFY) 2020, the program received a grant of $504,000 in federal funds, which constitutes 0.6 percent of the program budget.

1The Stevens Amendment is a federal law found in H.R. 6157, Department of Defense and Labor, Health and Human Services and Education Appropriations Act 2019 and Continuing Appropriations Act 2019, Division B, Title V, Section 505.
