National Farmworker Jobs Program

Restoring The American Dream For Farmworkers


This program provides employment, training, and educational activities and services to migrant and seasonal farmworkers. NFJP grants go to nonprofit and public agencies throughout the nation which serve over 25,000 migrant and seasonal farmworkers each year. These agencies compete for the grants and must demonstrate success in serving this hardworking, rural-based population.

Facts:

The NFJP helps secure our food supply by serving the workers who prepare and harvest 85% of the fruits and vegetables we consume. This is their access to the American Dream. Funding should be maintained and expanded.
