PathStone Corporation has recently taken over the distribution of the National Farmworker Jobs Program Grant in Maine.

This grant provides opportunities to individuals working in the agricultural sector who hope to gain access to services that provide them with further skills training and licensing, educational services, and any other career-development services, according to a news release from the nonprofit.

Funding also is available through the grant for dependents of individuals who qualify for this opportunity. The grant can provide dependents of eligible individuals with a similar variety of opportunities, ranging from career-development services to assistance with funding for educational opportunities.

All services through the NFJP are personally based and centered on the needs and goals of individual participants.

To qualify for services under this grant, individuals must be considered low-income and at least 51% or more of their income must have come from agricultural work within the last 24 months.

Those interested in learning more about the grant can contact Elizabeth Grout, regional administrator, at [email protected], 207-307-6174 or 263 State St., Suite 24, Bangor, ME 04401; or Juan Morales, outreach coordinator, at [email protected], 207-307-9471 or 771 Main St., Presque Isle, ME 04769.
