The deadline is fast approaching to apply for MHIC reimbursement. All applications and receipts must be submitted by March 31, 2022.

The NC Farmwork Health Program and the NC Agromedince Institute are providing reimbursement to employers who make internet connectivity improvements to housing for migrant, seasonal, and H-2A workers.

The program benefits include:

  • Easier to communicate with farm workers about outbreaks and emergencies
  • Farm workers have immediate access to telemedicine resulting in early detections, less exposure, and less missed time from work.
  • Access to healthcare resources and health information
  • Access to English as Second Language (ESL) classes and other educational opportunities
  • Ability to connect with family and friends decreasing feelings of isolation and loneliness
