GRANT APPLICATION FOR FEDERAL ASSISTANCE FOR THE SENIOR COMMUNITY SERVICE EMPLOYMENT PROGRAM (SCSEP)
All SCSEP grantees, except Unified Plan States, applying for funds under Title V of the OAA must submit a Standard Form 424, Application for Federal Assistance to:
- The State-designated Single Point of Contact (SPOC). It is advisable to check with the SPOC before sending the grant application form. Some states do not require clearance of SCSEP projects while others may require multiple copies.
- State Agencies on Aging. Applicants that are not State Agencies on Aging must submit a copy of the grant application to the appropriate State Agency on Aging in those States where they propose to operate. Comments from these organizations on the grant application should be sent within 20 days to the applicant and to DOWP. This requirement for consultation is intended to foster cooperation, coordination and the exchange of information.
- Area Agencies on Aging. Applicants planning to operate a project in the service area of an Area Agency on Aging (AAA) must provide the appropriate AAA with a copy of their grant application. Comments from the AAA should be provided within 20 days of submission, and the applicant should send a copy to DOWP.
- The Division of Older Worker Programs, with the entire grant application package when it has been completed.
