Title of Collaborative Activity:

Elder Justice Interagency Working Group

Description of Collaborative Activity:

The Elder Justice Interagency Working Group was established to protect older adults from abuse including self-neglect. NIA was a founding member of the group along with AoA. The group brings together federal officials responsible for carrying out elder justice activities, including elder abuse prevention, research, grant and program-funding, and prosecutions. Members meet regularly to discuss emerging issues, promising practices, and ways to coordinate their efforts. AoA has also put together a working group to lay the foundation for a study that will determine the prevalence of elder exploitation, and the adequacy of current Federal and State legal protections in this area.
