WENATCHEE — The Washington Apple Education Foundation announced Wednesday that applications for its farmworker education grants are now available on the WAEF website.

Community groups, religious institutions, public and private schools and other organizations helping ag workers and their families in adult education programs are eligible to apply. The deadline is March 15.

This year’s grants will be awarded to organizations providing educational programs to adult learners in areas where the tree fruit industry is prevalent. Such programs could include classes in English as a second language, adult basic education, parent empowerment courses and citizenship preparation.

WAEF partners with other groups and businesses to provide the grants. Those partners include Costco, Chelan Fresh, Jim Matson Memorial Fund, Oneonta Trading, U.S. Bancorp Foundation, Wells Fargo Bank and others.
