The New Mexico Department of Agriculture’s (NMDA) Agricultural Workforce Development (AWD) Pilot Program offers incentives to the state’s agricultural businesses to hire interns. The AWD Pilot Program is intended to provide hands-on educational opportunities for students aspiring to careers in agriculture, as well as young or beginning farmers and ranchers.
The AWD Pilot Program is the result of legislation (House Bill 315, the Agricultural Workforce Development Program Act) passed and signed into law in 2019.
The FY20 application period for the AWD Pilot Program has closed. For more information, please call 575-646-2642 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
