The National Farmworker Jobs Program provides funding to community-based organizations and public agencies to assist migrant and seasonal farmworkers and their families attain greater economic stability. Farmworkers also receive training and employment services through the nationwide network of American Job Centers, also called One-Stop Career Centers. The Monitor Advocate system, with responsibilities at the national, regional and state levels, help ensure that farmworkers are served equitably through workforce programs.
