Grants to USA nonprofits, for-profits, government and tribal agencies, and IHEs for activities that assist aging victims of exploitation and abuse. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. Priority is given to programs that benefit rural and high-poverty areas or that enhance public safety in economically distressed communities.
This program is intended to improve outcomes, minimize additional trauma, and restore safety and security to older adult victims of abuse and financial exploitation. Elder abuse, sometimes called elder mistreatment, includes any intentional or negligent act that causes harm or creates a serious risk of harm to an older person by a family member, caregiver, or other person in a trusted relationship. Elder abuse may include abuse that is physical, emotional/psychological (including threats), or sexual; neglect (including abandonment); and financial exploitation. This is a general definition; state definitions of elder abuse vary. Some definitions may also include fraud, scams, or financial crimes targeted at older people.
The goal of this program is to support communities in providing services to older victims of abuse and exploitation.
In FY 2020, and in addition to executing any program-specific prioritization that may be applicable, OJP will give priority consideration to applications as follows:
