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 the Administration on Aging (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.
