The National Farmworker Jobs Program (NFJP) provides housing assistance in order to support better economic outcomes for migrant and seasonal farmworkers (MSFWs). NFJP helps to meet a critical need for the availability of quality housing for farmworkers, and helps farmworkers to retain employment, or enter into and complete training that will lead to better opportunities.|
NFJP housing assistance funding is provided as grants to community-based organizations and public agencies. Housing assistance includes direct payments for emergency and temporary housing and for direct investments in housing assistance for MSFWs at their home base. Other indirect assistance includes leveraging services to increase or maintain housing stock available to farmworkers and housing development designed to improve living conditions for underserved farmworker communities.
