Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP)

SCSEP is a federally-funded, work-based training program providing economically disadvantaged older persons the opportunity to gain key work skills necessary for viable employment. 

This wage subsidy program provides skills training through part-time employment of Kansans, 55 years of age and older, who are unemployed and low income.

Non-profit and government agencies provide the training and benefit from increased workforce with subsidized salaries. 

Once desired skills are acquired SCSEP participants are assisted with securing regular, unsubsidized employment.

Eligibility requirements: (1) age 55 and over; (2) unemployed; (3) household income under 125% of federal poverty level {some types of income excludable in calculation}; and (4) a resident of Kansas.
