The purpose of this program is to strengthen the ability of migrant and seasonal farmworkers and their dependents to acquire necessary skills to either stabilize or advance in their agricultural jobs or obtain employment in new industries. Through this grant, NFJP grant recipients will facilitate the delivery of workforce solutions that are responsive to the needs of workers and employers of one to three targeted sector(s) (industry or cluster of occupations). Migrant and seasonal farmworkers and their dependents, including youth and adults, will receive quality career services and training opportunities that lead to industry-recognized credentials and good jobs in agriculture and non-agriculture sectors. This may include development of pre-apprenticeship programs linked to a Registered Apprenticeship program or an initial development of Registered Apprenticeship programs. Ultimately, an applicant’s proposed project design must result in increased access to good jobs, livable wages, and an improved quality of life for migrant and seasonal farmworkers and their dependents.
