Request a Grant Writer

Cooperative agreement with a USA IHE, nonprofit, hospital, or agency to create a resource center to research abuse of older people and create preventative initiatives. Applicants are advised to complete required registrations well in advance of the deadline. Collaboration with other entities and dissemination of information are key to the applicant's success.

ACL envisions the NCEA as a comprehensive resource center that is an authoritative source of accurate information, and a key stakeholder in providing insight on developments and issues in the field of elder maltreatment. In order to carry out its mission as a national clearinghouse of information on elder maltreatment with over a 25-year history, ACL expects that the NCEA will be responsive to the changing needs and priorities in the field of elder maltreatment. Inherent in such flexibility is the ability to capitalize on and leverage new research findings, new initiatives, and new opportunities. As a leader in the field, the NCEA should strive to strengthen existing, and seek out new, collaborations and partnerships with other entities to better address the multidimensional issues of elder maltreatment.

To achieve this mission, Section 202(d) of the OAA establishes the following goals for the NCEA:

  1. Annually compile, publish, and disseminate a summary of recently conducted research on elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation;
  2. Develop and maintain an information clearinghouse on all programs (including private programs) showing promise of success, for the prevention, identification, and treatment of elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation;
  3. Compile, publish, and disseminate training materials for personnel who are engaged or intend to engage in the prevention, identification, and treatment of elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation;
  4. Provide technical assistance to State agencies and to other public and nonprofit private agencies and organizations to assist the agencies and organizations in planning, improving, developing, and carrying out programs and activities relating to the special problems of elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation; and
  5. Conduct research and demonstration projects regarding the causes, prevention, identification, and treatment of elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation.

Consistent with the statutory requirements above, ACL has identified the following five (5) objectives for NCEA. At a minimum, applicants must identify how they propose to meet/carry out the objectives outlined below for the NCEA. Applicants may propose additional objectives that build upon or expand those established by ACL.

  1. Serve as a national authority and leader on elder maltreatment.
  2. Annually compile, publish, and disseminate a summary of recently conducted research on elder maltreatment.
  3. Develop and maintain a repository of information and resources on all programs (including private programs) showing promise of success for the prevention, identification, and treatment of elder maltreatment.
  4. Compile, publish, and disseminate training materials for personnel who are engaged or intend to engage in the prevention, identification, and treatment of elder maltreatment.
  5. Provide technical assistance to State agencies and to other public and nonprofit private agencies and organizations to assist the agencies and organizations in planning, improving, developing, and carrying out programs and activities relating to the special problems of elder maltreatment.

Due Date for Applications: 06/01/2021 by 11:59 PM Eastern Time

Applicants are requested, but not required, to submit a letter of intent to apply for this funding opportunity to assist ACL in planning for the application independent review process. The purpose of the letter of intent is to allow staff to estimate the number of independent reviewers needed and to avoid potential conflicts of interest in the review.

Under this ACL program, ACL will fund no more than 75% of the project’s total cost, which means the applicant must cover at least 25% of the project’s total cost with non-federal resources.
