DOL Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) Sector Training Demonstration Grants - Due 06/10/24

Opportunity Title:

Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) Optional Demonstration Grants on Sector-Based Training for Low-Income Older Adult Workers



Department of Labor (DOL), Employment and Training Administration (ETA)


Opportunity Number:




The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is the only Federally sponsored employment and training program specifically targeting low-income older individuals who seek to enter or re-enter the workforce. SCSEP participants receive paid work experience at local public or non-profit agencies for approximately 20 hours per week while in community service assignments (CSAs), and other job training activities outlined in their Individual Employment Plan (IEP). CSAs are provided through a host agency and this type of training is generally offered at the workplace rather than in the classroom setting. The IEP clarifies participants’ goals, supportive services needs, and training(s) required in order to attain unsubsidized employment. The dual goals of the SCSEP program are to promote useful work experience opportunities through community service activities, and to move SCSEP participants into unsubsidized employment.

This Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) solicits applications for optional SCSEP Sector Training Demonstration Grants, to understand how sector-based occupational training provided to SCSEP participants can help low-income older adults increase their job-readiness, employment, and earnings in unsubsidized employment. The demonstration projects will provide sector-based occupational training, which includes a combination of career navigation, occupational training, and on-the-job training (OJT), and other services to eligible SCSEP participants interested in sector-based training.
