Description
NIJ seeks proposals for research and evaluation related to abuse, neglect, and exploitation of elderly individuals and residents of residential care facilities. Research proposed may be focused at the State, local, tribal, Federal, or juvenile criminal justice policy, and practice levels. NIJ is interested in proposals that address gaps in the ability to prevent, detect, and respond to abuse, neglect, and exploitation of elderly individuals and people who live in residential care facilities. Priority research areas include studies that: (1) Identify and explore forensic markers of physical abuse, sexual abuse, and neglect among the elderly living in any setting; (2) Perform rigorous evaluations of programs designed to prevent, deter, detect, investigate, prosecute, or otherwise respond to abuse, neglect, and exploitation of elderly individuals and people who live in residential care facilities; and (3) Increase our understanding of financial exploitation, particularly: (1) risk and protective factors for financial fraud victimization and offending that could be targeted for prevention; (2) the consequences of financial abuse for older adults; and (3) the connection between financial exploitation and other forms of elder mistreatment.
