The ACL National Center on Elder Abuse serves as a national resource center dedicated to the prevention of elder mistreatment. The NCEA disseminates elder abuse information to professionals and the public, and provides technical assistance and training to states and to community-based organizations. NCEA is unique because it operates as a multi-disciplinary consortium of equal partners with expertise in elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation. They serve as a national clearinghouse of information for elder rights advocates, law enforcement, legal professionals, public policy leaders, researchers, and others working to ensure that all older Americans will live with dignity, integrity, independence, and without abuse, neglect, and exploitation.
Additional funds are needed to leverage the resource center's funding for elder abuse awareness through social media and creating state leadership networks through targeted campaigns that will assist states in spreading awareness. This supplementary funding would be provided for the approved period.
This program is authorized under Title II of the Older Americans Act Section 202(d)(2) which establishes the requirements for the National Center for Elder Abuse.
