Subject: [ELDERABUSE] OVW: Training Grants Program (via Elder Care ELDERCARE AT LISTSERV.IHS.GOV)

The Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) has made changes to the Training Grants Program. The following information regarding the FY 2006 solicitation is being released at this time because we will be looking for communities that are interested in developing meaningful collaborations and making a commitment to provide training to criminal justice professionals at all levels (law enforcement, prosecutors, and court personnel) in their community. We want to give advance notice so people can begin thinking about this project and start building the necessary relationships before the solicitation is released.

TRAINING GRANTS TO STOP ABUSE AND SEXUAL ASSAULT AGAINST OLDER INDIVIDUALS OR INDIVIDUALS WITH DISABILITIES DISCRETIONARY GRANT PROGRAM

The Office on Violence Against Women (OVW) administers the Training Grants to Stop Abuse and Sexual Assault Against Older Individuals or Individuals with Disabilities Discretionary Grant Program (Training Grants Program). This discretionary grant program was created by the Violence Against Women Act of 2000 to increase and strengthen training for law enforcement, prosecutors, and the judiciary in recognizing, investigating, and prosecuting instances of abuse, neglect, exploitation, domestic violence, and sexual assault against older individuals and individuals with disabilities. OVW will release a solicitation for the Training Grants Program in January 2006. (Funding to support the Training Grants Program in Fiscal Year 2006 is contingent upon Congressional appropriation of funds. Therefore, awards under this program are subject to Congressional appropriation.)

ELIGIBILITY The following entities are eligible to apply to this grant program: States; Tribes; Units of local government; Nonprofit, nongovernmental organizations, including faith-based organizations; State or local government agencies (e.g., prosecutors= offices, sheriffs= offices, courts); Private, nonprofit victim advocacy organizations; Public or private nonprofit service organizations for older individuals or for individuals with disabilities; National criminal justice constituencyorganizations; or Judicial organizations.

SPECIAL REQUIREMENTS Applicants for funding will be required to enter into a Memorandum of Understanding to establish and/or strengthen a true and meaningful collaborative relationship with at least four types of organizations/agencies as project partners: a) law enforcement, b) prosecutor’s office, c) a nonprofit, nongovernmental domestic violence victim services program or nonprofit, nongovernmental sexual assault victim services program, and d) a nonprofit program or government agency that serves older individuals). Each partner will send one representative to a train -the -trainer national conference to become certified as a trainer for the project and work as part of a multi-disciplinary training team.

Grantees will encourage judges in their jurisdiction to attend a national judicial training on elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation and fully participate in evaluation of the program. Grantees will also be required to provide letters of commitment from the specific law enforcement agency(ies), prosecutor’s office(s) and/or Federal, State, tribal and local court(s) whose officers and/or staff would be trained stating they willsend appropriate personnel to receive training.

OVW recognizes that it may take time to establish partnerships that will be fully committed to this project as required by the solicitation. OVW is hopeful that the early announcement of this upcoming funding opportunity will allow time to establish the necessary collaborations between criminal justice organizations; domestic violence and sexual violence victim service providers; nonprofit, nongovernmental organizations; and public or private nonprofit service organizations for older individuals or for individualswith disabilities.

The solicitation will include detailed information about specific requirements and funding levels and will be available on the OVW website. If you have any questions concerning the Training Grants Program, pleasecontact Janice Green at (202) 616-6728 or at Janice.A.Green AT usdoj DOT gov.
