MN Senior Volunteer Corps Programs

The Minnesota Board on Aging provides state funding to support Senior Corps programs in Minnesota. Federal funding is administered by the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS). Information about the federal program can be found at www.seniorcorps.gov

Three specific programs are included in Senior Corps:

  • Foster Grandparent Program (FGP): Volunteers provide service to children who have special or exceptional needs. Volunteers are income-eligible people age 55 and over. They volunteer at least 15 hours a week and receive an hourly stipend.
  • Senior Companion Program (SCP):  Volunteers provide assistance to older adults to help them remain independent and living in their own home. Volunteers are income-eligible people age 55 and over.  They volunteer at least 15 hours a week and receive an hourly stipend.
  • RSVP: RSVP facilitates volunteerism and supports Minnesotans age 55 and older to find and keep volunteer positions that address community needs.  RSVP offers maximum flexibility and choices to its volunteers as it matches the personal interests and skills with opportunities to serve in the community.
