Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA institutions of higher education and nonprofit organizations working in cooperation with institutions of higher education to assist workers in earning academic certification. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take up to several weeks to complete. Funding is intended to help seasonal and migratory agricultural workers and their family members obtain the equivalent of a secondary school diploma, and subsequently find employment, enter the military, or be placed in postsecondary education or training.

The purpose of the program is to promote projects aimed at creating or supporting alternative paths to a regular high school diploma or recognized postsecondary credentials for students whose environments outside of school, disengagement with a traditional curriculum, homelessness, or other challenges make it more difficult for them to complete an educational program.

Competitive Preference Priorities: 

  • Competitive Preference Priority 1— Fostering Flexible and Affordable Paths to Obtaining Knowledge and Skills. (Up to 5 points) Projects that are designed to address improving collaboration between education providers and employers to ensure student learning objectives are aligned with the skills or knowledge required for employment in in-demand industry sectors or occupations (as defined in section 3(23) of the Workforce Innovation and Opportunity Act of 2014).1
  • Competitive Preference Priority 2— Consideration of Prior Experience. (Up to 15 points) Projects that are expiring (current HEP grantees in their final budget period) will be considered for additional points under Competitive Preference Priority 2.

For more information on these priorities, see pages 1-2 of the Federal Register guidelines document in Supporting Documents below.
