We are looking for migrant and seasonal farmworkers and loggers who are trying to earn their GED. Through the Maine HEP grant you can be provided with:
- Transportation & childcare reimbursement
- Links to health and social services
- A stipend of $100/week to cover personal expenses while attending GED classes
- Books and school supplies
We’re looking for people who have done at least 75 days of farm or logging work over the last 24 months. Examples of qualifying farm work are blueberries, potatoes, dairy, poultry, tipping and logging. For logging, qualifying work includes: planting, trimming, de-limbing, and harvesting. As long as it’s not processing (working in a paper mill, chipping factory etc) it counts!
Immediate family members of the seasonal worker can participate. This includes: a spouse, a parent, step-parent, adoptive parent, foster parent, or anyone with guardianship, any person who claims the individual as a dependent on a Federal income tax return for either of the previous two years, or resides in the same household as the individual, supports that individual financially, and is a relative of that individual.
Please don’t hesitate to call to see if an activity counts. Anyone who qualifies for Migrant Education Programs and people who participate in the National Farmworker Jobs Program (NFJP) are automatically eligible.
Call PVAEC at 564-6525 to see if you qualify for this program!
