SENIOR COMMUNITY SERVICE EMPLOYMENT PROGRAM

Helping to make homes safer, more energy efficient, and healthier for migrant and seasonal farmworkers. 

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) provides training and employment services to help low-income participants 55 or older gain the skills needed to get jobs and become financially self-sufficient. SCSEP participants work roughly 20 hours a week for nonprofit organizations, school districts or government offices to receive work-based training and provide valuable services to their communities. Eligible participants earn minimum wage at their work-based training assignments, so they earn income while training.

ELIGBILTIY & DISABILITY SERVICES

You are eligible for SCSEP if you:

  • Are at least 55 years of age

  • Are eligible to work in the U.S.

  • Are unemployed

  • Earned a limited income for your family size during the last year

If you have a documented disability, you are considered to be a family of one, even if you live with several people in your household.

Some income is not included in income eligibility calculations, such as disability benefits and unemployment benefits.
