The USDA Farm Labor Stabilization and Protection Pilot Program (FLSP) will award up to $65 million in American Rescue Plan Act funding to provide support for agricultural employers in implementing robust labor standards to promote a safe, healthy work environment for both U.S. workers and workers hired from northern Central American countries under the seasonal H-2A visa program. The program is funded by the Farm Service Agency and will be administered by the Agricultural Marketing Service and the Farm Production and Conservation Business Center.
The purpose of the FLSP program is to improve food and agricultural supply chain resiliency by addressing challenges agricultural employers face with labor shortages and instability. The FLSP Program seeks to advance the following Administration priorities:
: Drive U.S. economic recovery and safeguard domestic food supply by addressing current labor shortages in agriculture;
: Reduce irregular migration from Northern Central America through the expansion of regular pathways; and
: Improve working conditions for all farmworkers.
The 2023 FLSP grant application period closes January 3, 2024
