Proteus is a 501(c)3 non-profit and a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) that was established in 1979 in Iowa. Proteus has facilitated the National Farmworkers Jobs Program (NFJP) and the National Farmworker Training Program (NFTP), two federal programs, in Iowa since then. The organization added the Agricultural Health Program, a primary care initiative, in Iowa in 1991. Proteus expanded the NFJP and NFTP services into Nebraska in 2010, and into Indiana in 2013.
