Program C: Action Match
Program Authorization: 42 U.S.C. 4951
The mission of the Action Match Program in the Office of Elderly Affairs is to provide volunteer opportunities for the elderly in Louisiana.
The goal of the Action Match Program in the Office of Elderly Affairs is to supplement the minimum required match, as appropriated by the State Legislature.
The Governor’s Office of Elderly Affairs receives appropriated funds from the Legislature given to the Senior Service Corps to match with Federal funds for the programs monitored through the Action Program. This is a federal program that recruits volunteers for five programs, three of which are oriented to the elderly. The Older American Volunteer Programs funded are the Senior Companion Program, Foster Grandparent Program, and Retired Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP). These programs benefit the volunteer as much as they help with needed services to the communities.
OBJECTIVES AND PERFORMANCE INDICATORS
Unless otherwise indicated, all objectives are to be accomplished during or by the end of FY 1999-2000. Performance indicators are made up of two parts: name and value. The indicator name describes what is being measured. The indicator value is the numeric value or level achieved within a given measurement period. For budgeting purposes, performance indicator values are shown for the prior fiscal year, the current fiscal year, and alternative funding scenarios (continuation budget level and Executive Budget recommendation level) for the ensuing fiscal year (the fiscal year of the budget document).
