Migrant Labor Camps

Citrus County Health Department

Program Overview 

The objective of this program is to reduce the risk of communicable disease transmission and injury among migrant farm workers by establishing comprehensive and uniform procedures for permitting and inspecting migrant housing.

Annually, 150,000 to 200,000 migrant and seasonal farm workers and their families travel to and work in Florida. The migrant labor camp program currently issues over 700 permits in 33 counties ensuring that 34,000 migrant and seasonal farm workers, and families live in housing that meets or exceeds standards set by law.

County health departments ensure uniformity and continuity with the Migrant Labor Camp Program rule and procedures by providing:

  • Plan Review and Permitting
  • Pre-Inspection and Routine Inspections
  • Investigations
  • Education
  • Application of State Laws and Rules

The Florida Department of Health maintains inspection data for Migrant Labor Camps.
