The Florida Department of Health in Collier County’s migrant housing program is designed 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. This program helps reduce the number of migrant farmworkers exposed to unhealthy conditions where they live and work.
Permitted facilities are inspected twice per quarter. The facilities are inspected to ensure a safe water supply, proper wastewater and garbage disposal, sanitary food storage conditions, safe housing standards and lack of overcrowded conditions.
Chapter 64E-14, and Florida Statutes 381.008, the governing rules, provide the minimum sanitation and health standards relating to construction, operation, and maintenance of migrant labor camps and residential migrant housing. Chapter 64E-14 is applicable to mobile homes, private residential rentals, rooming houses, barracks, and housing authority projects for farm workers when these facilities constitute a migrant labor camp or residential migrant housing.
