Senior Community Service Employment Program

NC-DAAS RFA Title V of the Older Americans Act Senior Employment Program

The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) places individuals 55 and older who are economically disadvantaged into part-time community service assignments while helping them transition into unsubsidized employment. SCSEP empowers low-income older workers to achieve economic independence while training in community service activities that assist in gaining marketable skills to re-enter the workforce. The Division of Aging and Adult Services and four national contractors administer SCSEP in 98 counties in the state. 


To be eligible, a person must:

  • Be at least 55 years of age
  • Be a resident of North Carolina
  • Be unemployed
  • Have an income at 125 percent of the poverty level or below
