NIJ is seeking proposals 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 will be particularly interested in funding research to:
- Determine an estimate of the financial costs associated with elder abuse.
- Develop a taxonomy of case outcomes that can be used to define success from multiple perspectives.
- Examine theoretical perspectives on elder abuse that move the field toward a better understanding of why some people abuse, neglect, and/or exploit elderly individuals.
