What is the program?

Meat and farm workers have had to pay for PPE and childcare expenses and suffered lost wages quarantining because of the COVID-19 pandemic. To recognize your sacrifices, UFCW helped secure a $668 million USDA Farm and Food Workers Relief Grant for workers.

Who can apply?

These grants are available to any non-management worker in the meatpacking industry at USDA-inspected plants and farms. There is also a limited test program for grocery workers that will later be rolled out nationwide. Grants are available to union and non-union workers. Application is open to all workers, regardless of citizenship or immigration status.
