Grant to a California nonprofit, community-based, or faith-based organization, tribal government, or educational institution to enhance awareness of workforce services. The purpose of the program is to provide government services to agricultural workers in rural and hard-to-reach areas.

The CCOG-C grant is awarded to design, develop, and implement projects that raise awareness and expand access points to intake and refer Migrant and Seasonal Farmworker (MSFW) complaints to the Employment Service (ES) and Employment-Related Law Complaint System (Complaint System).

Title 20 CFR, Parts 653 through 658 mandate the State Workforce Agency (SWA) to operate an outreach program to locate and contact MSFWs not reached through normal intake activities and inform them of the full range of government services in a way that meets their unique needs. These services include education, guidance, and access points for the ES Complaint System. The EDD is the California SWA.

The CCOG–C grant competition solicits proposals that employ best practices to partner with organizations that serve MSFWs to establish a Complaint System Awareness and Referral Program. The purpose of the program is to increase access points to identify, record, and refer MSFW complaints through the ES Complaint System to the local America’s Job Center of CaliforniaSM (AJCC) EDD Complaint Specialist. Applicants will braid funds and resources, collaborate with MSFW service providers, engage MSFWs, and draw on the expertise of community-based organizations (CBO), workforce partners, and other partners to design a program that provides effective and timely assistance to MSFWs seeking to file complaints.

Funds will be used to expand access to the ES Complaint System by establishing the Complaint System Awareness and Referral program for MSFWs statewide in rural hard to reach and underrepresented high-density agricultural areas. The project will create effective linkages with MSFWs that are not being reached by the normal AJCC activities with a focus on building meaningful and sustainable access points with partner agencies to escalate complaints to the their local EDD Complaint Specialist. These funds are critical to ensuring equity by increasing awareness, access points, and referrals to the ES Complaint System for MSFWs living in rural areas.
