Request a Grant Writer

Grant to a USA nonprofit or faith-based organization, IHE, public agency, or tribal government to increase access to legal services for older adult crime victims. Required registrations may take several days to complete. Priority will be given to programs in rural areas.

Building on previous legal service grant awards, this FY 2019 program will provide increased legal services for older victims of crime (particularly in rural areas), educate attorneys and allied professionals about the needs of older victims, and increase coordinated multidisciplinary responses in supporting older victims of crime.

Applicants must demonstrate knowledge and understanding of civil legal representation for older crime victims; enforcement of crime victims’ rights; management of sub-award organizations; and experience with training and technical assistance.

Program Goals:

1. Place attorneys in host site organizations to provide direct legal services to older victims of crime.
2. Provide training and technical assistance to attorneys, host sites, and other allied professionals.
3. Enhance and/or increase multidisciplinary, coordinated community responses to supporting older victims of crime.
4. Conduct an assessment of the program.

For the objectives and deliverables on each of these program goals, see: https://www.ovc.gov/grants/pdftxt/FY19-Elder-Abuse-Mobilizing-Attorneys.pdf#page=6

The Elder Justice Act of 2009 defines elder abuse as the “knowing infliction of physical or psychological harm or the knowing deprivation of goods or services that are necessary to meet essential needs or to avoid physical or psychological harm” of an individual age 60 or older. For the purposes of this solicitation, “elder abuse” includes physical abuse, sexual abuse, financial exploitation, financial fraud, neglect, and any other crimes against older adults.
