A four part training video, “Responding to Late Life Domestic Violence” is now posted on the age info website. “Responding to Late Life Domestic Violence” is the culmination of a three year VAWA STOP grant that was awarded to the Executive Office of Elder Affairs. The grant project was designed to provide training between Elder Protective Services Agencies, Domestic Violence Agencies and Rape Crisis agencies in order to improve responses to cases of domestic violence and sexual assault involving older women and to foster cross agency collaboration. The feedback from two years of live training was used to develop the concepts for this training film.

With the passage of the FY2014 General Appropriation Agreement (GAA), the Executive Office of Elder Affairs (EOEA) intends to issue Formula Grant Awards at a rate of $8.00 per elder, per municipality. Regardless of size, all communities are eligible to apply for at least $4,000. (Please see table of allocations below.)
EOEA uses the 2010 federal census as the basis for determining the award amount.
To ensure that initial payments (50% of your award amount) will be made as soon as practicable, COAs should complete and submit the previously issued “Statement of Grant/Allocation Balance for FY 2013” no later than September 23rd. Late submission of required material, or having an incorrect signatory, will be subject to payment processing delays.
We anticipate that Formula Grant Allocation contracts and instructions for FY 2014 will be issued as soon as practicable.
Please contact the Executive Office of Elder Affairs regarding this notice at 617-727-7750 with any questions.
