National Policy and Legislation

Few federal programs or policies address the needs of older victims of abuse. The small number of existing elder justice provisions in federal law have been sparsely funded (if they have been funded at all) and many have never been implemented. 

A legislative map detailing the federal programs and funding allocations can be found on Appleseed’s Life Long Justice website.
