Low-income New Jersey seniors aged 55 and older can be assisted by Workforce 55+ to achieve economic self-sufficiency through employment. Workforce 55+ is New Jersey's Senior Community Service Employment Program project, which trains and places older individuals in community service positions and unsubsidized employment.
Job-ready seniors are provided employment opportunities; other seniors are referred to classroom or work-based training at nonprofit organizations and public agencies in their communities, prior to transitioning into the workforce. Participants receive a minimal stipend while they train to obtain gainful, non-subsidized employment.
