Migrant and Seasonal Farmworkers
Organizations are eligible to receive funding under the section 330 (g) portion of the Public Health Service Act for providing health services to migrant and seasonal farmworkers.
Conditions include (1) providing available and accessible primary health care services, preventative and enabling services, which include oral health, mental health, and substance abuse services to migratory and seasonal farmworkers and their families in the area to be served; (2) explain how adjustments will be made for service delivery during peak and off-season cycles; and (3) discuss how the special environmental and occupational health concerns will be addressed. Organizations serving only migratory and seasonal farmworkers may request a “good cause” exemption to provide certain required primary health services only during certain periods of the year.
Additionally health centers funded to serve farmworkers must provide occupational related health services, including screening for infectious diseases and injury prevention programs.
