- Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP)
(OMB Control No. 1205-0040)
b. 1. D. Planned actions to coordinate SCSEP with other labor market and job training initiatives. (20 CFR 641.302(j))
Older workers and the pre-existing programs authorized under the Older Americans Act (OAA), including Alabama’s SCSEP, are now considered part of Alabama’s comprehensive workforce development system. Alabama’s SCSEP is an integral partner in the Alabama workforce development delivery system. This participation offers an unprecedented opportunity to assess the needs of mature and older workers in a unified and coordinated manner, at a time when those workers represent a dominant portion of the workforce.
For those who need to remain part of (and even participate in training and retraining activities) the state’s civilian labor force, their ability to use the workforce development system effectively will be critical to improving their skills and remaining in the labor force at levels enough to support their income needs as well as the needs of employers. SCSEP plans to continue participation in Alabama’s labor market and job training initiatives
