The National Farmworker Jobs Program

The National Farmworker Jobs Program (NFJP) is the most successful job training program operated by the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). It is a fiscally responsible program aimed at educating and training farmworkers into jobs that allow them to earn an income to sustain themselves and their families.

The 51 member agencies operate the program through competitive grants awarded by the United States Department of Labor. Members serve agricultural workers in 49 states and Puerto Rico—only Alaska has no program.

Most members also serve farmworkers in other ways, including Head Start, health, pesticide safety, education, ESOL, housing, and economic development.

Many operate emergency food and clothingbanks in their efforts to assist very low incomeworkers and their families.

“The thread that binds members to AFOP is their belief that well-managed and targeted workforce development services are a great springboard for launching farmworkers toward the American Dream of a better life for themselves and their children.”
