Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2012, $250,000)
This award was made under the "OVC 2012 Action Partnerships for National Membership, Professional Affiliation, and Community Service Organizations Responding to Polyvictimization" solicitation. This program furthers the Department's mission by fostering partnerships among OVC, the victim services field, and national membership, professional, and community service organizations to advance victims' rights and improve victims' services through training, public awareness, and educational efforts, with a focus on responding to polyvictimization.
The National Committee for the Prevention of Elder Abuse, along with seven national collaborative partners, will conduct a literature review and hold a national forum on the exploration of late life polyvictimization and its most promising solutions. From these a curriculum will be developed including a high quality video series with written training materials and a dedicated e-training website. ca/ncf
