Grants to USA states, territories, agencies, nonprofits, for-profits, IHEs, and tribal entities to address and respond to cases of elder abuse. Applicants are advised that required registrations must be completed prior to applying. Funding is intended to enhance response to issues of financial exploitation.
This program will develop elder abuse "case review" MDTs, which bring together a group of professionals to discuss elder abuse cases with the goals of facilitating healing through the provision of services (healthcare, legal, mental health, housing, etc.). This approach has the potential to offer a robust, yet victim-centered, criminal justice response.
Under this program, OVC seeks applications to support the development and/or enhancement of multidisciplinary teams and to strengthen the capacity of E-MDTs to better identify and respond to cases of elder abuse and more comprehensively serve and support victims of financial exploitation. E-MDTs are characterized by expanded membership, including forensic accountants, neuropsychologists, medical personnel, and other appropriate professionals, so that case-related efforts more comprehensively incorporate the needs of older victims of financial exploitation and other forms of elder abuse. Through these E-MDTs, OVC hopes to improve case outcomes while minimizing additional trauma and restoring safety and security to older adult victims of crime, and to potentially hold more offenders accountable.
The objective of this solicitation is to fund up to 10 E-MDTs at the tribal, local, or state levels, including existing and new teams, with special emphasis on better recognizing elder financial exploitation. These teams should include forensic accountants, neuropsychologists, medical personnel, and/or other appropriate professionals (to possibly evaluate the victim’s cognitive abilities and capacity), so that case-related efforts more comprehensively consider and address the needs of older victims of financial exploitation and other forms of elder abuse. These victim-focused E-MDTs are to be designed to improve the case review process and associated systems. In addition to system coordination, these E-MDTs should seek to better understand victims’ priorities and needs, which must include determining effective responses to financial exploitation.
Applicants may propose to either develop new MDTs or enhance existing teams. These victim-focused E-MDTs should be designed to improve the case review process and associated systems. In addition to system coordination, these E-MDTs should seek to better understand victims’ priorities and needs, which must include addressing effective responses to financial exploitation.
