Today, many older Americans are looking for employment to help make ends meet. The Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) is the only federal program targeted to help older workers.

Two-thirds of the low-income older Americans participating in SCSEP are women, almost half are from a racial or ethnic minority, and almost a third are 65 years or older.
