Request for Proposals

The National Center on Elder Abuse (NCEA) issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for an Elder Justice Community Collaborations project, administered by the National Committee for the Prevention of Elder Abuse (NCPEA) for the NCEA.

Project Objective

This Request for Proposals supported the development of multi-disciplinary coalitions at the local level by providing on-site training and technical assistance to Area Agencies on Aging, Title VI Grantees, and/or community organizations interested in developing new (not currently existing) elder justice coalitions. If a state unit on aging is a single PSA (does not have designated area agencies on aging), it may have been considered for a mini-grant under this RFP.

Project Description

NCEA awarded, through a competitive application process, 10 elder justice community collaboration mini-grants, each in the amount of $10,000, dependent on satisfactory completion of the project. The grants were designed to provide seed money to assist organizations in developing new, local multi-disciplinary elder justice networks to develop strategies to address detection, intervention and prevention of elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation. NCPEA then administered the grants and application process for NCEA.

An initial payment of $8,000 was disbursed to each selected mini-grant awardee at the time of the award. The remaining $2,000 was then disbursed upon satisfactory completion of the project criteria and submission of a final report by June 15, 2011.

The RFP for the project can be found at NCEA’s website at:
