Services to Students

A CAMP project provides services to assist participants in completing their first year of college, to assure the success of the participants in meeting the project’s objectives, and in succeeding in an academic program of study at the Institute of Higher Education (IHE). The types of allowable services include:

  • Outreach and recruitment services to eligible persons
  • Personal, academic, and career counseling
  • Tutoring and academic skill building instruction and assistance
  • Assistance with special admissions
  • Health services
  • Assistance in obtaining student financial aid
  • Housing support for students living in institutional facilities and commuting students
  • Exposure to cultural events, academic programs, and other educational/cultural activities not available to migrant youth
  • Internships

In addition, a CAMP project must provide follow up services for students after they have completed their first year of college. However, grantees may not use more than 10 percent of their awarded funds for follow up services. Follow up services could include:

  • Monitoring and reporting the academic progress of a student’s first year of college and their subsequent years in college
  • Referring students to on- or off- campus providers of counseling services, academic assistance, or financial aid



  • The National High School Equivalency Program (HEP) and College Assistance Migrant Program (CAMP) Association is dedicated to ensuring that migrant and farmworker youths have access to earning GEDs and postsecondary education opportunities. The National HEP-CAMP Association Web Page provides general information about the HEP and CAMP programs as well as links to individual directors of HEP and CAMP programs across the country.
  • National Agricultural Workers Survey (NAWS) – The U.S. Department of Labor is the only national information source on the demographics and working and living conditions of U.S. farmworkers. Since the NAWS began surveying farmworkers in 1988, it has collected information from over 25,000 workers. The survey samples all crop farmworkers in three cycles each year in order to capture the seasonality of the work. The NAWS locates and samples workers at their work sites, avoiding the well-publicized undercount of this difficult-to-find population. During the initial contact, arrangements are made to interview the respondent at home or at another convenient location.
  • U.S. Department of Agriculture, National Agricultural Statistics Survey (NASS), Census of Agriculture – The census of agriculture is a complete accounting of United States agricultural production. It is the only source of uniform, comprehensive agricultural data for every county in the Nation. The census includes as a farm every place from which $1,000 or more of agricultural products were produced and sold or normally would have been sold during the census year. The census of agriculture is taken every five years covering the years ending in “2”; and “7.”

Performance Reporting and Evaluation

Annual Performance Reporting allows programs to determine the overall effectiveness in meeting program goals and objectives, such as GPRA 1, GPRA 2, and Efficiency targets.

Program evaluation allows programs to: 1) provide data on GPRA 1,GPRA 2 and Efficiency targets; 2) determine at what level of quality program activities are being implemented; 3) identify strengths and weaknesses in program implementation and program effectiveness through tools such as exit interviews, surveys, observations, recruitment, counseling, or tutoring logs, and research analyses (finding correlations between practices and results). Program evaluation is both formative and summative, allowing for the use of annual performance results that may lead to recommendations for changes in programming.

Grant Management and Monitoring

Monitoring is an integral part of the Department of Education’s grant administration and oversight. The end goal of the Department’s monitoring is to promote the efficient and effective achievement of the program objectives. These objectives are in support the Department’s mission to promote student achievement and preparation for global competitiveness by fostering educational excellence and ensuring equal access. OME conducts monitoring to:

  • Examine the objectives and results achieved by a HEP or CAMP project, particularly progress against GPRA indicators
  • Review implementation of a HEP or CAMP project with a focus on project quality and areas of improvements
  • Determine project compliance with applicable statutes/regulations; and
  • Examine the resolution of prior findings from monitoring reviews and audits.

Funding Status

Financial Management

The Department of Education requires its grantees to maintain adequate financial management systems. An adequate financial system is one that enables the grantee to accurately identify the source and disbursement of all funds for federally sponsored activities. To ensure transparency and compliance with the terms of the grant, grantees must retain records of their financial management procedures. A high-quality financial management system should also allow the grantee to show the relationship between financial data and performance outcomes.
