Agricultural Services Plans
The Agricultural Services Plan sets policies, and objectives in providing WPA services to the agricultural community, specifically Migrant and Seasonal Farmworkers (MSFWs). The EDD-WSB provides these services through the One-Stop system ensuring that MSFWs receive the full range of employment, training, and educational services on a basis that is qualitatively equivalent and quantitatively proportionate to services provided to non-MSFWs.
Plans present the following information:
- Assessment of need: A review of the previous year’s agricultural, MSFW activity in the state, and projected levels of agricultural and MSFW activity in the coming year.
- Outreach activities: A review of the resources available for MSFW outreach and description of outreach efforts to be provided to MSFWs.
- Services provided to MSFWs through the One-Stop system: A description of ways the state will ensure that MSFWs have equal access to employment opportunities.
- Services provided to agricultural employers through the One-Stop system: A description of how the state will promote and provide labor exchange services and identify agricultural employers expected to employ MSFWs.
