Civic Engagement

The Voice of AAPI Older Adults

Through civic engagement, NAPCA and its community partners are the voice of AAPI older adults.

Our current ongoing efforts are tied to the FY18 proposed budget to fund Title V of the Older Americans Act, otherwise known as the Senior Community Service Employment Program, or SCSEP.

As SCSEP is the only federal job training program focused exclusively on helping low-income older Americans return to the workforce, empowering them to improve their financial well-being, NAPCA has launched a public awareness campaign to educate national policy makers on the successful impacts of SCSEP. We are shining the spotlight on how SCSEP is addressing the broad social and economic issues experienced by the AAPI community.

Our Past Civic Engagement Efforts
June 2015: White House Conference on Aging

2015 marked the 50th anniversary of Medicare, Medicaid, and the Older Americans Act, as well as the 80th anniversary of the Social Security. The 2015 White House Conference on Aging was an opportunity to recognize the importance of these key programs as well as to look ahead to the issues that will help shape public policy for older Americans for the next decade.

The conference was live streamed and NAPCA hosted six watch parties in Honolulu, Hawaii; Seattle, Washington; Los Angeles, California; and Chicago, Illinois. The watch parties engaged older adults in the one-a-decade event, allowing them to participate in this important decision.
