The High School Equivalency Program (HEP) provides funding to help migrant and seasonal farm workers and their children obtain a general-education diploma (GED) that meets the guidelines for high school equivalency established by the state in which the HEP project is conducted. It also aims to allow migrant and seasonal farm workers and their children to gain employment or be placed in an institution of higher education or other postsecondary education or training. ED expects to make 15 awards, each ranging in value from $150,000 to $475,000.
