DIRECTIVE OLDER WORKER BULLETIN 02-03
TO ALL SENIOR COMMUNITY SERVICE EMPLOYMENT PROGRAM (SCSEP) GRANTEES
SUBJECT Recognition of Grantees for Their Efforts to Achieve Their Program Year (PY) 2000 Unsubsidized Placement Goals



1.        PURPOSE: To share with all SCSEP grantees the results of our unsubsidized placement efforts and the number of participants served for PY 2000 (July 1, 2000 – 30, 2001). Also attached is the SCSEP Summary Report for PY 2000
2.        REFERENCES: Older Worker (OW) Bulletin Nos. 00-27 and 97-2.

3.
        BACKGROUND: The 2000 amendments to Title V of the Older Americans Act (OAA) include performance indicators against which actual grantee performance will be compared. Under the amended OAA, national grantees that do not meet established performance measures will receive technical assistance and could have their funding reduced while states may be subject to the imposition of similar sanctions.

Final performance indicators and measures have not yet been determined. There are two program goals under the current SCSEP that are similar to those in the amended legislation. One is a national unsubsidized placement goal of 20 percent, and the other is for each grantee to serve at least 140 percent of the number of positions funded.

4.        RATES OF TRANSITION: For the program year that ended June 30, 2001, the overall SCSEP placement rate was 33.8 percent,and the service percentage was 172.9 percent.

The Department commends the fine efforts of the grantees that have met or exceeded the current program performance goals. We encourage grantees to continue their efforts to meet or exceed their goals as identified in the grant agreement. It is also noteworthy that, as a group, SCSEP grantees exceeded the program performance goals set forth in OW Bulletin No. 97-2.

5.        ACTION REQUIRED:
During this program year, it is very important that grantees focus on meeting or exceeding both the unsubsidized placement goal and the service rate goal.


6.         INQUIRIES: Questions should be directed to your Federal Representative at (202) 693-3842.
