California?s Housing for the Harvest program was revived in March 2021 with an additional $24 million. The program began in summer 2020, and spent $155,000 by March 2021 to provide 137 hotel rooms to farm workers who were in quarantine and wanted to avoid spreading the virus to their families, an average of over $1,100 per room, most of which is reimbursed by the federal government.
The revised Housing for the Harvest program would provide $1,000 grants to farm workers who quarantine at home, and expects to support 17,600 farm workers. Riverside county offers $2,000 grants to farm workers who test positive or were exposed to Covid with no conditions, and has a long waiting list.
