OVC seeks applications which focus on elder financial exploitation through innovative collaborations between the financial industry and others to better detect and respond to victims. These efforts should build the capacity of victim service providers and financial industry representatives to enhance fraud detection and provide trauma-informed, age-appropriate services and resources for victims. Projects proposed under this program must be built on collaborative partnerships that are national in scope to develop or enhance promising practices, models, and programs and provide enhanced or improved services for these victims. OVC expects to make up to six awards of up to $500,000 each, with an estimated total amount awarded of up to $3,000,000. OVC expects to make awards for a 24-month period of performance, to begin on October 1, 2018. OVC conducted a pre-application webinar on June 13. A transcript of this webinar is available at www.ovc.gov/grants/webinars.html. Apply by July 5, 2018.
