Natural Disaster Resources for SCSEP Grantees
In an effort to provide support during Hurricane Harvey, the Senior Community Service Employment Program (SCSEP) National Office has updated two resources to help grantees navigate the programmatic issues that often occur during natural disasters.
The SCSEP National Disaster FAQs answer important questions such as what types of services grantees can provide to displaced participants and how to continue providing SCSEP services during emergency situations. Additionally, the Federal Resources for Disaster Response fact sheet provides information and links to resources and assistance.
For those grantees affected by Hurricane Harvey, we hope that your natural disaster recovery plan has been useful in providing you guidance for continuing operations and providing services during this emergency. To update us on the impact of Hurricane Harvey on your organization, host agencies, and our SCSEP participants reach out to your Federal Project Officer, with a copy to SCSEPTransition@dol.gov.
You can also update us by posting your status and comments on the Older Workers COP discussion topic titled, “Hurricane Harvey and SCSEP.”
