North Carolina Division of Aging and Adult Services

    Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP)

    Older WorkerIf you are 55 years or older and economically disadvantaged, the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is available to you through the Division of Aging and Adult Services and other agencies in North Carolina. The Senior Community Service Employment Program, funded through Title V of the Older Americans Act, places individuals 55 and older who are economically disadvantaged into useful part-time community service programs while helping them transition into unsubsidized employment.

    Do I qualify?
    To be eligible, a person must have an income at 125 percent of the poverty level or below, be at least 55 years of age, and be a resident of North Carolina.

    Where do I get help?
    Three national contractors and the Division of Aging and Adult Services provide SCSEP services in North Carolina. The Division of Aging and Adult Services provides SCSEP in five regions which cover 25 counties. You can contact the Area Agency on Aging in the area where you live to find out about the availability of SCSEP in your county.
