Program Description

Migrant and Seasonal Farmworker Program
The National Farmworker Jobs Program (NFJP) is a nationally-directed program created by Congress in response to the chronic seasonal unemployment and underemployment experienced by migrant and seasonal farmworkers (MSFWs). The NFJP offers assistance that strengthens the ability of farm workers and their families to achieve economic self-sufficiency. Since its inception with the passage of the Economic Opportunity Act of 1964, the farmworker program has been an integral part of the national workforce strategy.

List of Services

  • Core Services- skills assessment, job search, WIA program eligibility determination and access to other core services of the local One-Stop Center
  • Intensive/Training Services- These services allow farm workers and their family members to acquire skills that permit them to progress to other employment outside of farm work, or to upgrade employment within agriculture. These services include objective assessment, basic education and employment development planning.
  • Related Assistance Services- These services contribute to the stabilization of the farm workers’ continued employment in farm work or support the farm worker during job training. These services include short-term forms of direct assistance to farm workers and their families who have an urgent need for food or housing.
