The Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) provides federal leadership in developing the national capacity to reduce violence against women and administer justice for and strengthen services to victims of domestic violence, dating violence, sexual assault, and stalking. OVW administers the Enhanced Training and Services to End Abuse in Later Life grant program, which funds projects that support a comprehensive approach to addressing elder abuse in their communities. These projects provide training to criminal justice professionals to enhance their ability to address elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation; provide cross-training opportunities to professionals working with older victims; establish or support a coordinated community response to elder abuse; and provide or enhance services for victims who are 50 years of age or older.
The mission of the Elder Justice Initiative (EJI) is to support and coordinate the U. S. Department of Justice’s enforcement and programmatic efforts to combat elder abuse, neglect, and financial fraud and scams that target our nation’s older adults. EJI engages in this work by building federal, state, and local capacity to fight elder abuse; promoting justice for older Americans; supporting research to improve elder abuse policy and practice; and helping older victims and their families.
