Statements at the hearing noted the many accomplishments of senior volunteers, from working with children, to helping combat drug abuse, to serving meals to senior citizens. As the subcommittee is aware, the ACTION agency provides programs to grass-roots organizations that fre- quently do not have the technical expertise or the ability to com- pete successfully for some of the larger programs that are available through such agencies as Department of HHS or through HUD and some of the other social service agencies. There has been a proposal made to eliminate the position of Associate Director of the Domestic and Anti-Poverty Op- erations. That there would be a disproportionate span of control situation here and the number of subordinates reporting di- rectly to me would be inappropriate. 2nd an estimated achievement level against which progress is to b long term in duration.Hearing before the Subcommittee on Human Resources of the Committee on Education and Labor, House of Representatives, One Hundred First Congress, First Session. The legislation was recommended for renewal with some changes, such as increased stipends for volunteers. This year you are asking for a million increase up to about million. What is important for us, in order to be able to meet the needs and to assist these local community organizations, is to have an adequate level of staff to provide the technical assistance to enable these individuals and organizations to participate fully in our pro- grams. There has also been, I believe, a suggestion that the positions of Director of the Older American Programs and VISTA be elevated to presidential appointments. As our current structure is set up, the management and budget operations come under the juiisdiction of the current Associate Di- rector, Roland Goodman, and I as Acting Associate Director of Do- mestic Operations handle the operations in the field. I think the grade level of the individuals serving in those positions is appropriate as it now stands and I would strongly recommend that we retain the current organizational structure and distribution of authority and responsibility as it is now placed in the current positions within the Agency. OBJECTU ES are actions or steps leading to the achievement of a goal and must be achievable, measurable, time phased and short term in duration.Through the Sheltering Arms SCP, caregiving is directed to a 66-year-old woman who has suffered from Alzheimer's disease for five years. We have had to cancel the training that we were giving our project directors this year, and the required monitoring visits that we are mandated to perform to carry out our oversight responsibil- ities of one site visit per project per year are not being accom- plished. In terms of the support that you can offer, are we talking about offering support to communities that are applying for these grants— in other words, technical distance to communities ERLC 23 that otherwise would not be able to compete for some of these grants?

The volunteer assists with feeding, and dressing and provides companionship. We were c lly able to perform 48 percent of those site visits last year and are hoping this year to improve that, but in order to do so we will have to take scarce resources from other areas. p „ik ij as pre Retirement Seminars rnav also be included ERIC 46 GOAL #3 Project Advisory Council — The evolvement of a represent atn e and well-developed Ad visorv Council must be one goal of the project.A total of 31 SCP's with 179 Senior Companions are serving approximately 625 veterans. First, 1 must reiterate that due to budgetary constraints, the FY 1990 budget pro- posal for the ACTION agency does not include additional funding for either stipend increases or the expansion of the numbers of current levels of stipended volunteers. b Generation of Local Support (both to meet projected commitment and for project expansion) — Includes project and Advisory Council activities as well as requests to local governments United Way, private foundations, private sector, etc. Goals and objectives are reasonable, ()()()() feasiole and measurable and reflect written criteria contained in KAFF (Notice of Availability of Federal Funas ) .Over the past two years, 11 SCP projects have received component funding for a two-year period to support 66 volurteer service years annually. Second, in the interest of making a fair and judicious determination of whether it would be preferable to increase the stipend of existing volunteers rather than to in- crease the numbers of low-income volunteers in the programs, I would say that such a determination should be made on the relative merits of priorities vis a vis the pro- ERIC 22 grams and the participants, rather than enacting an automatic legislative mecha- nism. c Volunteer Station Relationships — On going projects mav wish to write objectives foi impio\ ing relations with volunteer stations, dealing with such aieas as wh«n ^uhmillin K M HON profit pr»£rr«» rtnorll r o 51 ERJ.
