The purpose of this section is to provide incentives to encourage

and reward effective performance by States and tribal organizations

in the efficient delivery of nutritious meals to older individuals.

(b) Allotment and provision of cash or commodities

(1) The Secretary of Agriculture shall allot and provide in the

form of cash or commodities or a combination thereof (at the

discretion of the State) to each State agency with a plan approved

under this subchapter for a fiscal year, and to each grantee with

an application approved under subchapter X of this chapter for such

fiscal year, an amount bearing the same ratio to the total amount

appropriated for such fiscal year under subsection (e) of this

section as the number of meals served in the State under such plan

approved for the preceding fiscal year (or the number of meals

served by the subchapter X grantee, under such application approved

for such preceding fiscal year), bears to the total number of such

meals served in all States and by all subchapter X grantees under

all such plans and applications approved for such preceding fiscal

year.

(2) For purposes of paragraph (1), in the case of a grantee that

has an application approved under subchapter X of this chapter for

a fiscal year but that did not receive assistance under this

section for the preceding fiscal year, the number of meals served

by the subchapter X grantee for the preceding fiscal year shall be

deemed to equal the number of meals that the Assistant Secretary

estimates will be served by the subchapter X grantee in the fiscal

year for which the application was approved.

(c) Donation of products

Secretary of Agriculture under section 612c of title 7, shall be

payments to such State in an amount equivalent in value to the

donated foods which the State otherwise would have received if such

State had retained its commodity distribution.

(2) When such payments are made, the State agency shall promptly

to recipients of grants or contracts. Such disbursements shall only

be used by such recipients of grants or contracts to purchase

United States agricultural commodities and other foods for their

nutrition projects.

the Secretary of Agriculture to require any State to elect to

receive cash payments under this subsection.

(4) Among the commodities delivered under subsection (c) of this

section, the Secretary of Agriculture shall give special emphasis

to high protein foods. The Secretary of Agriculture, in

counseling, or case management services.

(B) Ombudsman, elder abuse prevention, legal assistance, or

(3) Prohibitions

A State or tribal organization shall not permit the cost

sharing described in paragraph (1) for any services delivered

through tribal organizations. A State shall not permit cost

sharing by a low-income older individual if the income of such

individual is at or below the Federal poverty line. A State may

exclude from cost sharing low-income individuals whose incomes

are above the Federal poverty line. A State shall not consider

any assets, savings, or other property owned by older individuals

when defining low-income individuals who are exempt from cost

sharing, when creating a sliding scale for the cost sharing, or

when seeking contributions from any older individual.

(4) Payment rates

If a State permits the cost sharing described in paragraph (1),

such State shall establish a sliding scale, based solely on

individual income and the cost of delivering services.

(5) Requirements

If a State permits the cost sharing described in paragraph (1),

such State shall require each area agency on aging in the State

to ensure that each service provider involved, and the area

agency on aging, will -

(A) protect the privacy and confidentiality of each older

individual with respect to the declaration or nondeclaration of

individual income and to any share of costs paid or unpaid by

an individual;

(B) establish appropriate procedures to safeguard and account

for cost share payments;

(C) use each collected cost share payment to expand the

service for which such payment was given;

(D) not consider assets, savings, or other property owned by

an older individual in determining whether cost sharing is

permitted;

(E) not deny any service for which funds are received under

this chapter for an older individual due to the income of such

individual or such individual's failure to make a cost sharing

payment;

(F) determine the eligibility of older individuals to cost

share solely by a confidential declaration of income and with

no requirement for verification; and

(G) widely distribute State created written materials in

languages reflecting the reading abilities of older individuals

that describe the criteria for cost sharing, the State's

sliding scale, and the mandate described under subparagraph

(E).

(6) Waiver

An area agency on aging may request a waiver to the State's

cost sharing policies, and the State shall approve such a waiver

if the area agency on aging can adequately demonstrate that -

(A) a significant proportion of persons receiving services

under this chapter subject to cost sharing in the planning and

service area have incomes below the threshold established in

State policy; or

(B) cost sharing would be an unreasonable administrative or

financial burden upon the area agency on aging.

(b) Voluntary contributions

(1) In general

Voluntary contributions shall be allowed and may be solicited

for all services for which funds are received under this chapter

provided that the method of solicitation is noncoercive.

(2) Local decision

The area agency on aging shall consult with the relevant

service providers and older individuals in agency's planning and

service area in a State to determine the best method for

accepting voluntary contributions under this subsection.

(3) Prohibited acts

The area agency on aging and service providers shall not means

test for any service for which contributions are accepted or deny

services to any individual who does not contribute to the cost of

the service.

(4) Required acts

The area agency on aging shall ensure that each service

provider will -

(A) provide each recipient with an opportunity to voluntarily

contribute to the cost of the service;

(B) clearly inform each recipient that there is no obligation

to contribute and that the contribution is purely voluntary;

(C) protect the privacy and confidentiality of each recipient

with respect to the recipient's contribution or lack of

contribution;

(D) establish appropriate procedures to safeguard and account

for all contributions; and

(E) use all collected contributions to expand the service for

which the contributions were given.

(c) Participation

(1) In general

The State and area agencies on aging, in conducting public

hearings on State and area plans, shall solicit the views of

older individuals, providers, and other stakeholders on

implementation of cost-sharing in the service area or the State.

(2) Plans

Prior to the implementation of cost sharing under subsection

(a) of this section, each State and area agency on aging shall

develop plans that are designed to ensure that the participation

of low-income older individuals (with particular attention to

low-income minority individuals and older individuals residing in

rural areas) receiving services will not decrease with the

implementation of the cost sharing under such subsection.

(d) Evaluation

Not later than 1 year after November 13, 2000, and annually

thereafter, the Assistant Secretary shall conduct a comprehensive

evaluation of practices for cost sharing to determine its impact on

participation rates with particular attention to low-income and

minority older individuals and older individuals residing in rural

areas. If the Assistant Secretary finds that there is a disparate

impact upon low-income or minority older individuals or older

individuals residing in rural areas in any State or region within

the State regarding the provision of services, the Assistant

Secretary shall take corrective action to assure that such services

are provided to all older individuals without regard to the cost

sharing criteria.

individuals can reasonably be expected to outweigh any negative

consequences, or particular circumstances in the State otherwise

The provisions of this subchapter that may be waived under this

section are -

(1) any provision of sections 3025, 3026, and 3027 of this

this title if granting the waiver will promote innovations or

improve service delivery and will not diminish services already

provided under this chapter;

(4) any restriction under paragraph (5) of section 3028(b) of

this title, on the amount that may be transferred between

programs carried out under part B of this subchapter and part C

of this subchapter; and

services, with respect to a State that reduces expenditures under

the State plan of the State (but only to the extent that the

non-Federal share of the expenditures is not reduced below any

minimum specified in section 3024(d) of this title or any other

than 1 year after the expiration of such waiver, and at any time

during the waiver period that the Assistant Secretary may require,

the State agency shall prepare and submit to the Assistant

Secretary a report evaluating the impact of the waiver on the

operation and effectiveness of programs and services provided under

Sec. 3056. Older American community service employment program

-STATUTE-

(a) Establishment

(1) In order to foster and promote useful part-time opportunities

in community service activities for unemployed low-income persons

who are 55 years or older and who have poor employment prospects,

and in order to foster individual economic self-sufficiency and to

increase the number of persons who may enjoy the benefits of

unsubsidized employment in both the public and private sectors, the

Secretary of Labor (hereafter in this subchapter referred to as the

"Secretary") is authorized to establish an older American community

service employment program.

(2) Amounts appropriated to carry out this subchapter shall be

used only to carry out the provisions contained in this subchapter.

(b) Authority of Secretary; execution of agreements to further

purposes and goals of program

(1) In order to carry out the provisions of this subchapter, the

Secretary is authorized to enter into agreements, subject to

section 3056l of this title, with State and national public and

private nonprofit agencies and organizations, agencies of a State

government or a political subdivision of a State (having elected or

duly appointed governing officials), or a combination of such

political subdivisions, or tribal organizations in order to further

the purposes and goals of the program. Such agreements may include

provisions for the payment of costs, as provided in subsection (c)

of this section, of projects developed by such organizations and

agencies in cooperation with the Secretary in order to make the

program effective or to supplement the program. No payment shall be

made by the Secretary toward the cost of any project established or

administered by any organization or agency unless the Secretary

except for necessary technical, administrative, and supervisory

personnel, but such personnel shall, to the fullest extent

possible, be recruited from among eligible individuals;

(B)(i) will provide employment for eligible individuals in the

community in which such individuals reside, or in nearby

communities; or

(ii) if such project is carried out by a tribal organization

that enters into an agreement under this subsection or receives

assistance from a State that enters into such an agreement, will

provide employment for such individuals, including those who are

Indians residing on an Indian reservation, as the term is defined

in section 3501(2) of title 25;

(C) will employ eligible individuals in service related to

publicly owned and operated facilities and projects, or projects

sponsored by organizations, other than political parties, exempt

maintenance of any facility used or to be used as a place for

sectarian religious instruction or worship;

(D) will contribute to the general welfare of the community;

(E) will provide employment for eligible individuals;

(F)(i) will result in an increase in employment opportunities

over those opportunities which would otherwise be available;

(ii) will not result in the displacement of currently employed

workers (including partial displacement, such as a reduction in

the hours of nonovertime work or wages or employment benefits);

and

(iii) will not impair existing contracts or result in the

substitution of Federal funds for other funds in connection with

work that would otherwise be performed;

(G) will not employ or continue to employ any eligible

individual to perform work the same or substantially the same as

that performed by any other person who is on layoff;

(H) will utilize methods of recruitment and selection

(including participating in a one-stop delivery system as

established under section 134(c) of the Workforce Investment Act

of 1998 (29 U.S.C. 2864(c)) and listing of job vacancies with the

employment agency operated by any State or political subdivision

thereof) which will assure that the maximum number of eligible

individuals will have an opportunity to participate in the

project;

(I) will include such training as may be necessary to make the

most effective use of the skills and talents of those individuals

who are participating, and will provide for the payment of the

reasonable expenses of individuals being trained, including a

reasonable subsistence allowance;

(J) will assure that safe and healthy conditions of work will

be provided, and will assure that persons employed in community

service and other jobs assisted under this subchapter shall be

paid wages which shall not be lower than whichever is the highest

of -

(i) the minimum wage which would be applicable to the

employee under the Fair Labor Standards Act of 1938 [29 U.S.C.

201 et seq.], if section 6(a)(1) of such Act [29 U.S.C.

206(a)(1)] applied to the participant and if the participant

were not exempt under section 13 [29 U.S.C. 213] thereof;

(ii) the State or local minimum wage for the most nearly

comparable covered employment; or

(iii) the prevailing rates of pay for persons employed in

similar public occupations by the same employer;

(K) will be established or administered with the advice of

persons competent in the field of service in which employment is

being provided, and of persons who are knowledgeable with regard

to the needs of older persons;

(L) will authorize pay for necessary transportation costs of

eligible individuals which may be incurred in employment in any

project funded under this subchapter, in accordance with

regulations promulgated by the Secretary;

(M) will assure that, to the extent feasible, such project will

serve the needs of minority, limited English-speaking, and Indian

eligible individuals, and eligible individuals who have the

greatest economic need, at least in proportion to their numbers

in the State and take into consideration their rates of poverty

and unemployment;

(N)(i) will prepare an assessment of the participants' skills

and talents and their needs for services, except to the extent

such project has, for the participant involved, recently prepared

an assessment of such skills and talents, and such needs,

pursuant to another employment or training program (such as a

program under the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (29 U.S.C.

2801 et seq.), the Carl D. Perkins Vocational and Technical

Education Act of 1998 (20 U.S.C. 2301 et seq.), or part A of

title IV of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. 601 et seq.));

employment counseling based on strategies that identify

appropriate employment objectives and the need for supportive

services, developed as a result of the assessment and service

strategy provided for in clause (i); and

in meeting such objectives and satisfying their need for

supportive services;

(O) will provide appropriate services for participants through

the one-stop delivery system as established under section 134(c)

will be involved in the planning and operations of such system

pursuant to a memorandum of understanding with the local

workforce investment board in accordance with section 121(c) of

such Act (29 U.S.C. 2841(c));

(P) will post in such project workplace a notice, and will make

available to each person associated with such project a written

explanation, clarifying the law with respect to allowable and

unallowable political activities under chapter 15 of title 5

applicable to the project and to each category of individuals

associated with such project and containing the address and

telephone number of the Inspector General of the Department of

Labor, to whom questions regarding the application of such

chapter may be addressed;

(Q) will provide to the Secretary the description and

information described in paragraphs (8) and (14) of section

112(b) of the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 [29 U.S.C.

(R) will ensure that entities carrying out activities under the

project, including State offices, local offices, subgrantees,

subcontractors, or other affiliates of such organization or

agency shall receive an amount of the administration cost

allocation that is sufficient for the administrative activities

under the project to be carried out by such State office, local

office, subgrantee, subcontractor, or other affiliate.

(2) The Secretary is authorized to establish, issue, and amend

such regulations as may be necessary to effectively carry out the

provisions of this subchapter.

(3) The Secretary shall develop alternatives for innovative work

modes and provide technical assistance in creating job

opportunities through work sharing and other experimental methods

to labor organizations, groups representing business and industry

and workers as well as to individual employers, where appropriate.

(4)(A) An assessment and service strategy provided for an

eligible individual under this subchapter shall satisfy any

condition for an assessment and service strategy or individual

employment plan for an adult participant under subtitle B of title

I of the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (29 U.S.C. 2811 et seq.),

in order to determine whether such individual qualifies for

intensive or training services described in section 134(d) of such

Act (29 U.S.C. 2864(d)), in accordance with such Act.

(B) An assessment and service strategy or individual employment

plan provided for an adult participant under subtitle B of title I

of the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (29 U.S.C. 2811 et seq.)

shall satisfy any condition for an assessment and service strategy

for an eligible individual under this subchapter.

(c) Authority of Secretary; project costs; non-Federal share;

administration costs

(1) The Secretary is authorized to pay a share, but not to exceed

90 percent of the cost of any project which is the subject of an

agreement entered into under subsection (b) of this section, except

that the Secretary is authorized to pay all of the costs of any

such project which is -

(B) a project located in an economically depressed area,

as determined by the Secretary in consultation with the Secretary

of Commerce and the Secretary of Health and Human Services.

carry out the project assisted under this subchapter, based on

information submitted by the grantee with which the Secretary has

an agreement under subsection (b) of this section, the Secretary

may increase the amount available for paying the cost of

administration to an amount not more than 15 percent of the cost

of such project; and

payments for workers' compensation, costs associated with

achieving unsubsidized placement goals, and other operation

requirements imposed by the Secretary;

(ii) the number of employment positions in the project or the

number of minority eligible individuals participating in the

project will decline if the amount available for paying the

cost of administration is not increased; or

(iii) the size of the project is so small that the amount of

administrative expenses incurred to carry out the project

necessarily exceeds 13.5 percent of the amount for such

project,

the Secretary shall increase the amount available for the fiscal

year for paying the cost of administration to an amount not more

than 15 percent of the cost of such project.

(4) The costs of administration are the costs, both personnel and

non-personnel and both direct and indirect, associated with the

corresponding product for all States, except as follows:

(1) Minimum allotment

No State shall be provided an amount under this subsection that

No State shall be provided an amount under this subsection that

is less than 1/2 of 1 percent of the amount provided under

subsection (c) of this section for State grantees in all of the

States.
