Farmworker Housing

Farmworker Housing

Farmworker housing plays an increasingly crucial role in the success of many agricultural crops. As the labor market continues to tighten, the availability of housing is becoming a key advantage in the recruitment process. Growers who can offer safe housing to their seasonal and migrant farmworkers are generally more attractive to prospective workers. The Washington Growers League owns and operates multiple seasonal housing facilities. We also operate Rent-A-Tent, a Washington State Department of Community Trade and Economic Development program.
