Senior Work Program

Goals of the Senior Work Program


  • To employ qualified senior citizens who will apply their earnings toward payment of a portion of their property taxes
  • To enhance municipal service by utilizing the skills of resident senior citizens
  • To increase senior citizen involvement in local government

Volunteers Make a Difference


This program represents a modest effort to provide some financial relief to retired taxpayers of Concord. Yet the program can not assist every eligible citizen. This program will prove counter-productive if its effect is to discourage volunteerism with respect either to committees or to other civic activities. For those who are not eligible or not selected for work within this program, please continue to volunteer. Concord needs you!
