HEP assists migrant and seasonal farmworkers to obtain a general education diploma (GED) and to be placed in postsecondary education or training, career positions, or the military. By locating the programs at IHEs, migrant and seasonal farmworkers also have opportunities to attend cultural events, academic programs, and other educational and cultural activities usually not available to them. CAMP assists migrant and seasonal farmworkers to successfully complete the first academic year of study in a college or university, and provides follow-up services to help students continue in postsecondary education.
The selection criteria used to review applications are included in the application package. The Congress has appropriated a total of $23,000,000 for HEP and $15,000,000 for CAMP for FY 2002. Increases in the FY 2002 appropriations ($3,000,000 for HEP and $5,000,000 for CAMP) will be used to fund new applications.
