SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: HEP assists migrant and seasonal farmworkers

postsecondary education or training, career positions, or the military. 
By locating the programs at IHEs, migrant and seasonal farmworkers also 
have opportunities to attend cultural events, academic programs, and 
other educational and cultural activities usually not available to 
them. CAMP assists migrant and seasonal farmworkers to successfully 
complete the first academic year of study in a college or university, 
and provides follow-up services to help students continue in 
postsecondary education.
    The selection criteria used to review applications are included in 
the application package.
    The Congress has appropriated a total of $20,000,000 for HEP and 
$10,000,000 for CAMP for FY 2001. The increases in the FY 2001 
appropriations ($5,000,000 for HEP and $3,000,000 for CAMP) will be 
used to fund new applications.
