New Solicitation: Research on the Abuse, Neglect, and Exploitation of Elderly Individuals

NIJ is seeking applications for funding for research and evaluation related to the abuse, neglect, and exploitation of elderly individuals. As the elderly population grows, crimes against this population are expected to increase. NIJ has identified the following two priority areas:

1.         Defining and operationalizing polyvictimization among elderly individuals; and
2.         Developing a taxonomy of case outcomes that can be used to define success in elder abuse intervention research from multiple perspectives.

The deadline for applications under this funding opportunity is March 20.
