To provide additional clarification on joint or dual enrollment of SCSEP enrollees in
All Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) Sponsors

Expiration Date: Not Given
Reference: Older Worker Bulletins: 97-8, "Eligibility Certification for Enrollees in Joint SCSEP-Job Training Partnership Act Programs"; 94-10, "Joint Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) Eligibility"; and 94-1, "Technical Amendment to Title V of the Older Americans Act"
Background: Although there have been two issuances to the JTPA network regarding joint enrollment in SCSEP and JTPA, many Service Delivery Areas and JTPA Section 204(d) operators remain reluctant to accept eligibility determinations conducted by SCSEP program operators. This situation works to the detriment of seniors who are seeking and in need of employment and training.
Recently, Region III issued a Regional Field Memorandum designed to clarify the policy on dual enrollment. This regional issuance reiterates the Department of Labor's policy and briefly discusses some of the concerns that JTPA operators have expressed. A copy of this memorandum is attached for your information.
Action: SCSEP sponsors should review the attachment and are encouraged to share copies with appropriate staff and other agencies. We hope this information will foster cooperation between the JTPA and SCSEP programs.
Questions may be directed to your Federal Representative, (202) 219-5904.
