Agricultural Worker Access Campaign

The Ag Worker Access Campaign is a national initiative to increase the number of migratory and seasonal agricultural workers (MSAWs) and their families served in Community and Migrant Heath Centers (C/MHCs) across the U.S.

C/MHCs serve approximately 22% (977,744*) of the estimated 4.5 million Ag Workers and their families currently living in the U.S. Our goal is to increase the number of Agricultural workers and their families served ​in Health Centers to at least 2 million.

Launched in 2015, under the direction of NACHC’s’ Committee for Ag Worker Health and managed jointly by NACHC and the National Center for Farmworker Health (NCFH), the Campaign has built nationwide momentum, resulting in an 85,688 increase in the number of MSAW patients served since its inception. The Campaign is guided by a 23-member national Task Force representing health centers, primary care associations, health center controlled networks, National Training and Technical Assistance Partners, and other organizations representing education, housing, and labor. Task Force priority areas include:

  • Ensuring C/MHC staff receive the training and technical assistance they need to effectively outreach to the Ag Worker population, and accurately classify and report them in UDS
  • Understanding and addressing MSAW’s unique needs and the barriers they face related to accessing health care
  • Identifying and disseminating promising practices for increasing access to care for MSAWs
  • Supporting local/regional/state coalitions between C/MHCs and other Ag worker-serving entities
