The purpose of the Migrant Education Program (MEP) is: (1) to ensure eligible children of migratory farm workers and migratory fishers are provided with appropriate educational support services to help reduce the educational lags that result from repeated moves; and (2) to ensure these children have the opportunity to meet the same challenging state educational content and student performance standards that all children are expected to meet.

This program focuses on the provision of the following services for eligible children of migratory farm workers and migratory fishers: identification and recruitment of students, the intrastate and interstate transfer of student records, supplemental instruction, and health and other support services.

The NJDOE is offering this NGO to the two applicants who were selected through a competitive process in Year 1: Gloucester County Special Services School District (serving Region I); and Essex County Educational Services Commission (serving Region II).

This is the fourth year of a five-year program.

Based on the availability of federal MEP funds, this fourth year of the grant program will begin January 1, 2022 and end on December 31, 2022.
