Description:Provide funding to states to enhance their APS systems statewide, as well as improve the quality and quantity of data submitted to ACL's National Adult Maltreatment Reporting System (NAMRS). This Forecast seeks to fund demonstrations to address the gaps in community services that negatively impact older adults and adults with disabilities that are involved with adult protective services. This funding is intended as a demonstration to identify effective actions that reduce the harm from the opioid epidemic experienced by older adults and adults with disabilities who are involved with APS. Through this demonstration, ACL expects documented improvements in the experiences, well-being, and outcomes of individuals who are served by APS and who are experiencing the negative impact of the opioid epidemic.

Through this demonstration, ACL expects documented improvements in the experiences, well-being, and outcomes of individuals who are served by APS and who are experiencing the negative impact of the opioid epidemic. To contribute to the program's goal to improve the outcomes for individuals experiencing abuse, neglect, and exploitation, grantees will be required to undertake activities that will: • demonstratively improve a state’s current APS practice in opioid-related cases; • improve a state's collection of client-level data, especially for APS cases involving opioids; • demonstrate how enhancements to the state’s APS practices/programs are sustainable; and • contribute to the body of knowledge about the characteristics of victims and perpetrators of adult abuse in APS cases involving opioids.
