Grants to USA states, territories, agencies, nonprofits, for-profits, IHEs, and tribal entities to create or enhance multidisciplinary teams to address and respond to cases of elder abuse. Funding is also intended for a technical assistance center to identify and promote best practices for the multidiscplinary teams.

Under this program, OVC seeks applications to support the development and/or enhancement of multidisciplinary teams (MDT) and to strengthen the capacity of "enhanced MDTs" to better identify and respond to cases of abuse and more comprehensively serve and support victims of elder abuse and financial exploitation by also funding a National Elder Abuse Training and Technical Assistance Center. 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 potentially hold more offenders accountable.

OVC intends to fund two separate purpose areas under this solicitation.
- Purpose Area 1: Enhanced Multidisciplinary Teams. OVC expects to make any award under this solicitation in the form of a grant. Goals:
- Purpose Area 2: Multidisciplinary Team Technical Assistance Center. OVC expects to make any award under this solicitation in the form of a cooperative agreement. Goals:

Note: Separate and unique funding is available for tribal applicants, and therefore OVC anticipates that they will not “compete” with non-tribal applicants due to the availability of that funding.
