Under this program, OVC seeks applications to support the development and/or enhancement of multidisciplinary teams and to strengthen the capacity of E-MDTs to better identify and respond to cases of elder abuse and more comprehensively serve and support victims of financial exploitation.

E-MDTs are characterized by expanded membership, including forensic accountants, neuropsychologists, medical personnel, and other appropriate professionals, so that case-related efforts more comprehensively incorporate the needs of older victims of financial exploitation and other forms of elder abuse.

Through these E-MDTs, OVC hopes to improve case outcomes while minimizing additional trauma and restoring safety and security to older adult victims of crime, and to potentially hold more offenders accountable.

OVC anticipates making up to 10 awards of up to $375,000 each for a 36-month period of performance, to begin on October 1, 2021.
