Farmworker Resource Program Advisory Committee

The Farmworker Resource Program Advisory Committee was dissolved effective October 9, 2018.

The Board of Supervisors approved the creation of the Farmworker Resource Program (FRP) on June 6, 2017 with the program goals of: 

  • Building trust and relationships with farm workers
  • Promoting and enhancing the reputation of the agriculture industry in Ventura County
  • Attracting farm workers to Ventura County as a first-choice destination to work in agriculture
  • Assisting farm workers of existing labor laws protecting them
  • Assisting farm workers in navigating public agencies and seeking resolutions to workplace issues
  • Recommending job descriptions for program staff
  • Recommending an entity to house the program


An eight-member advisory committee was created with four members appointed by the Farm Bureau and four members by the Mixteco Indigena Community Organization (MICOP) to help design, create, monitor and evaluate the program. Additionally, the County Executive Office was directed to facilitate the FRPAC meetings.
