Eligibility Requirements

The Legacy Career Force Demonstration Grant (Legacy) is a temporary program that provides intensive, one-to-one career services and support to low-income (living at or below 125% of Federal Poverty Guidelines), under and unemployed adults 55 and older. The program helps participants overcome barriers to employment and gain the skills they need to successfully find and keep a job.

Adults 55 and over deserve to live in communities that are respectful, inclusive, and free of discrimination based on a person’s age, and to be celebrated for their accomplishments and contributions. Through Legacy, we help eligible individuals identify and overcome barriers to employment. Legacy Career Navigators meet with local employers to discuss the benefits of hiring experienced workers.

Career Navigators customize solutions to meet the unique needs of each participant and connect them directly with employers. This focused approach addresses the barriers that many experienced workers face in achieving successful employment and retention. Career Navigators advocate for experienced workers.  

The services of this program are ideal for experienced, low income, under or unemployed adults, 55 or older who:

  • want to update their skills to stay abreast of employer needs  
  • need short term, focused training to qualify for local jobs
  • want to sharpen their skill set
  • need assistance with job search
  • are retired and want to return to work part time or full time
  • need support to overcome employment barriers 
  • need an advocate to help them acquire meaningful employment
  • want to return to the workforce and give back to their communities
  • want to feel confident that they and their families can live vibrant, purposeful lives at any age
