Resources for Seasonal Farmworker Housing

With peak season for many labor-intensive commodities quickly approaching, USDA has compiled a list of potential federal, state, and philanthropic alternative housing opportunities for seasonal farmworkers.

Because farmworker housing is typically communal, which could increase the risk for spreading COVID-19, the federal government is gathering housing-related resources designed to protect worker safety and maintain critical working infrastructure.

Included in the document are resources involving community development grants, housing development grants and loans, rent assistance and other housing services. Employers should ensure that any options considered meet required regulatory housing standards.
