Request a Grant Writer

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.

Deliverables include:

  • Direct service provision to older victims, using trauma-informed approaches that protect the safety and confidentiality of victims.
  • Resources for service providers and criminal justice stakeholders.
  • Advocacy, assistance, and safety planning within the criminal justice system and with social service agencies and community organizations, in order to restore older victims’ lives and help to prevent further victimizations.
  • Efforts to support and promote opportunities to ensure older victims of crime are treated with dignity and respect.
  • A final report describing project activities, promising practices, challenges encountered, and solutions to address those challenges to improve outcomes for older crime victims.

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:

  • Applications that address specific challenges that rural communities face.
  • Applications that demonstrate that the individuals who are intended to benefit from the requested grant reside in high-poverty areas or persistent-poverty counties.
  • Applications that offer enhancements to public safety in economically distressed communities (Qualified Opportunity Zones).
