(OMB Control No. 1205-0040)
b. 1. B. Planned actions to coordinate activities of SCSEP grantees with the activities being carried out in the State under the other titles of the Older Americans Act (OAA). (20 CFR 641.302(h))
The State Grantee SCSEP Program Administrator is housed in the DWD Central Office and manages the other Older Americans Act (OAA) funds and programs. DWD meets monthly with the Family and Social Services Administration (FSSA) and Indiana's Area Agencies on Aging, which provide case management, information, and referrals to various services for persons who are aging or developmentally disabled, to coordinate activities under OAA. The SCSEP Administrator hosts regular meetings to coordinate all OAA programs and is connected to the Employment Services Program which is charged with increasing the employment of people served by Office of Aging and Disability Services (OADS). Additionally, DWD-OADS has a Memorandum of Understanding with Vocational Rehabilitation Services to coordinate access to services and supports for older individuals with disabilities.
DWD plans to hold bi-monthly meetings with the service provider that manages the OAA, who is also housed in the DWD building. In addition, weekly meetings by phone or face-to-face with all parties involved who help to serve our SCSEP clients, as well as partner with FSSA to co-case manage the individual to ensure successful referral for additional services.
