Basic Field—Agricultural Worker Grants

Basic Field—Agricultural Worker grants address the legal needs of agricultural workers and their dependents who are most effectively and efficiently served through a dedicated grant program. LSC provides funding for these grants on a per-capita basis using data about agricultural worker populations living in poverty from the Employment and Training Administration (ETA) in the Department of Labor (DOL). LSC funds these grants within the overall Basic Field grant program, for which LSC distributes funding using poverty population data provided by the U.S. Census Bureau every three years, as required by LSC’s annual appropriation.
