WASHINGTON — The U.S. Department of Labor today announced a one-time demonstration grant award of $3,224,509 to 14 community service organizations to improve services to low-income older workers through the Senior Community Service Employment Program.
"Older workers are essential to the fabric of our nation, but it can be difficult for many of these Americans to access good jobs," said Portia Wu, assistant secretary of labor for employment and training. "The federal grants we're announcing today will help these individuals overcome challenges in re-entering the workforce and attaining economic stability."
