For Seniors in Southern Illinois

Helps adults who are aged 55+ find employment and job training programs. Training is the critical link that assists individuals with re-entering the workforce. Many older adults have lost their jobs later in their career. For these older adults, this program is vital in assisting the older adult to get back into the workforce.

Provides unemployed, low-income adults aged 55 years and older with part-time jobs working in local nonprofit, government, and faith-based agencies providing services in the community. Working in their community service assignments, participants earn income while they build their self-confidence and learn skills valued by local employers. Applicants must meet the eligibility guidelines below.

  • 1 person household, $1,448 income per month
  • 2 person household, $1,939 income per month
  • Add $491 for each additional person in a household

The monthly income limits are 125% of the poverty level. These figures may change if the poverty level changes.
