UFW Foundation

Our mission is to empower communities to ensure human dignity.

About the Organization

For 15 years, the UFW Foundation has mobilized farm workers and their organizations across the country to advocate for more equitable policies, such as immigration reform, pesticide protections, heat standards, hazard pay, and other worker protections. We engage constituents in systemic change to break the cycle of poverty while also providing critical services. In fact, the UFW Foundation is the largest federally accredited immigration legal service provider in the state of California. The organization has staff in California, Washington, Arizona, Michigan, Washington D.C. and will be expanding to Georgia.

$600 Relief Payment - Farm and Food Worker Relief Program

The Farm and Food Worker Relief (FFWR) Grant Program is an initiative by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) aimed at providing financial support to eligible farm and food workers during the COVID-19 pandemic. Through a one-time relief payment of $600, the program assists workers in covering expenses incurred in preparing for, preventing exposure to, and responding to the pandemic. Administered by selected nonprofit organizations and a Tribal entity, the program disbursed approximately $670 million from the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021 to aid workers who were on the frontlines in the agricultural sector, ensuring the nation's food supply chain remained intact amidst the pandemic's challenges. Eligible workers can apply for this relief through designated local organizations, providing a much-needed financial reprieve during these trying times.
