(A) The purpose of state funds for National Senior Service Corps (NSSC) programs is to provide NSSC programs with state general funds to help pay volunteer travel expenses.
(B) Definition and Service Scope:
(i) The Corporation for National and Community Service, formerly known as ACTION, a federal agency, monitors the three programs that make up the NSSC. The three programs are the Senior Companion Program, Foster Grandparent Program, and the Retired and Senior Volunteer Program.
(ii) For the purposes of this subsection, a Senior Volunteer is defined as an individual who is 60 years of age or over, or is 55 or over for Retired and Senior Volunteer Program, and is currently participating in one of the NSSC programs.
(iii) Service scope: senior volunteer job placement or site locations are not limited to senior services only. They are determined by the needs of the community and may include elementary schools, hospitals, and parks, to enhance intergenerational interaction and society's awareness of the contributions seniors make in their communities.
(C) The Division's Responsibilities:
(i) The Division will allocate state general funds, through legislative appropriation, to the local NSSC programs designated by the Corporation for National and Community Service and the Division.
(ii) The Division will be held accountable for state NSSC funds and will monitor contractors to insure that those funds are being expended in compliance with state legislative intent.
(iii) State funds for NSSC programs will be used for volunteer travel expenses support.
(A) "Volunteer travel expenses support" is defined as a payment made to retired and senior volunteers for mileage reimbursement, not to exceed the state's current rate by more than $0.05; excess auto insurance; gasoline, maintenance and insurance for service vehicles utilized for volunteer activities; van or bus drivers' salaries; contracts with transportation companies, bus fare, cab fare or passes, or other related direct NSSC volunteer travel cost.
(B) If state funds for NSSC programs are used as federal match by local volunteer programs, Corporation for National and Community Service travel reimbursement rules apply. Under these rules, volunteer programs are limited to reimbursing volunteers for the cost of traveling from their home to their volunteer station and back. Funds used as federal match can not be used to reimburse volunteers for transportation costs incurred while performing their volunteer assignments. Volunteer stations are responsible for reimbursing these costs.
(D) Contractor Responsibilities:
(i) Contractor will be held accountable for the distribution of state funds to appropriate NSSC programs. Contractor will monitor expenditures to ensure compliance with state legislative intent, as is provided in sub-section 1(C)(ii) above.
