Grants to California nonprofit organizations to promote health and racial equity in eligible locations during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis. Funding is intended for collaborative projects supporting systemic change that will benefit local farmworkers. Proposals must advance farmworker recovery and resiliency through non-lobbying policy and systems change in the San Joaquin Valley.

Applicants must identify specific non-lobbying policy/systems change activities that would directly advance one or more policy recommendation(s) that emerged from or are informed by the COVID-19 Farmworker Study’s findings and specify the path for addressing these that meaningfully engages farmworkers in every stage of the advocacy (e.g., project advisory committee that includes farmworkers; incorporating farmworkers as spokespersons, witnesses).

The final recommendations from the study were released in early February 2021 and highlight needs for data-informed advocacy, outreach, and organizational capacity-building to support farmworker health, safety, and economic security through the advancement of the CIRS COVID-19 Farmworker study findings and recommendations. 

The proposed strategy must include most/all of the following process elements:

  • Coalition Building/Partnership Development
  • Civic Engagement
  • Non-legislative Policy Conceptualization and Development
  • Community Leadership Development
  • Community Engagement, Organizing, Advocacy, and Mobilization
  • Multi-Ethnic/Multi-Racial/Multi-Sector Collaboration
  • Communications/Outreach and Education
