1_ovc_logoOVC FY 2017 Field-Generated Innovations in Addressing Elder Abuse and Financial Exploitation – The Field-Generated Innovations in Addressing Elder Abuse and Financial Exploitation Project solicitation seeks applications that are national in scope to develop or enhance promising practices, models, and programs that build the capacity of victim service and other ancillary providers in support of victims of elder abuse and financial exploitation. The ultimate aim is to enhance the provision of services and support to crime victims and ensure that victims are afforded the rights, services, and responses they are due. Innovation projects should focus on improving the capacity of the crime victims’ field to provide trauma-informed, culturally competent, comprehensive services to victims of elder abuse and financial exploitation. Applicants must propose to provide enhanced or improved victim services for these victims through implementation or continuation of a demonstration project developed from a promising practice, model, or program in three distinct areas (Combating Elder Abuse and Financial Exploitation Through Technology, Increasing Justice for Older Americans, and Focusing on Victims by Identifying and Remedying Elder Abuse and Financial Exploitation). Current Closing Date for Applications: June 28, 2017.
