Award Description: The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) fosters economic self-sufficiency through community service activities for unemployed, low-income persons who are 55 years of age and older and have poor employment prospects. SCSEP Recovery Act funds will serve additional unemployed low-income senior citizens. In addition, SCSEP grantees are expected to expand the number of SCSEP participants assigned to community service work, especially in the growth industries emphasized in the Recovery Act (e.g., health care, child care, education, green jobs, energy efficiency and environmental services) and in expanded community service activities that utilize Recovery Act funds. The system?s implementation of the Recovery Act should yield not only increased services and training for unemployed low-income seniors, but also provide increased community services that will invigorate and advance prosperity in the communities in which they live.
Project Description: 48 seniors are currently being served. 58 seniors total are scheduled to be served.
Jobs Summary: Employment and training coordinators who assist low income seniors. (Total jobs reported: 2)
