A seasonal farmworker is a person who during the preceding 24 months has worked an aggregate of 75 or more days or parts of days in which some work was performed in farm work, earned at least half of his/her income from farm work and was not employed in farm work year round by the same employer.

A migrant farmworker is a seasonal farmworker who had to travel to do the farm work so that he/she was unable to return to his/her permanent residence within the same date.

WIA Section 167 is a national customer-centered, goal-oriented farmworker program that guides participants through a holistic case management system (e.g. JTPA 402 Program, High School Equivalency Program [HEP]).
