Farm and Food Workers Relief Program

UMOS is proud to offer $600 payments from the USDA to Farmworkers and Meat Packers who worked during the COVID-19 Pandemic, supporting critical aspects of our nation’s food system.

This relief is intended to defray costs for reasonable and necessary personal, family, or living expenses related to the COVID-19 pandemic, such as but not limited to costs for personal protective equipment (PPE), dependent care, and expenses associated with quarantines and testing. Once a worker has been verified as eligible, the worker is to receive a single $600 payment to be released in a single financial transaction.
