Funder: Administration for Community Living
About the Administration for Community Living
Each year, Congress appropriates funds to the Administration for Community Living (ACL) to support community living through a variety of programs. ACL, in turn, provides the funding to states and local governments, community organizations, colleges and universities, and other organizations that conduct research or provide services and supports for older adults and people with disabilities. Grants and cooperative agreements are the major vehicles through which ACL transfers its appropriated funds to organizations providing, supporting, or researching community living.
About the Opportunity
The purpose of the Elder Justice Innovation Grants program is to support the development and advancement of new and emerging issues related to elder justice. Funded projects will contribute to the improvement of the field of elder abuse prevention and intervention at large, such as by developing materials, programs, etc. that can be widely disseminated and/or replicated, or by establishing and/or contributing to the evidence base of knowledge.
For this opportunity, projects will target the following populations and goals:
- Assess the fairness, effectiveness, timeliness, safety, integrity, and accessibility of adult guardianship and conservatorship proceedings, and develop innovations to improve the experiences of individuals at risk of guardianship/conservatorship; and
- Assess and understand the various community services that produce better outcomes for persons transitioning from APS interventions which are emergent and short-term to the broader OAA and community-based programs that remediate and prevent recurrence of abuse over the longer term.
Applications are due May 24, 2021.
