Elder Justice Program

Equal Justice Works invites qualified evaluators to competitively apply to conduct an evaluation of the Equal Justice Works Elder Justice Program, a legal fellowship program designed to increase access to legal assistance for older victims of crime.

The Elder Justice Program mobilizes a cohort of attorneys as Fellows to provide direct legal services, outreach and education, and work with victims of elder abuse and exploitation to enforce their rights and address wide-ranging civil legal issues such as financial exploitation, housing, protection orders, guardianship, and public benefits. The Elder Justice Program host organization RFP process has concluded as of April 2020.

NOTICE OF EVALUATOR RFP SUSPENSION

Equal Justice Works is temporarily suspending its RFP (EJP-20A02) titled “Evaluation of the Elder Justice Program” issued on  March 2, 2020, soliciting evaluators to competitively apply to conduct an evaluation of the Equal Justice Works Elder Justice Program. This temporary suspension is a result of the Federal and State restrictions imposed on all industries across the United States due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Equal Justice Works anticipates that this suspension will assist organizations as they address any reduced capacity or operational difficulties caused by this national crisis.

We anticipate re-opening the RFP upon the resumption of normal U.S. business operations, or the rescission of state and federal restrictions, or at the behest of the project sponsor. Status updates will be provided periodically to our mailing list and on this page.

If you have any questions about the program, please contact Equal Justice Works at [email protected].

The Elder Justice Program is supported by an award from the U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, Office for Victims of Crime (OVC), Award Number 2019-V3-GX-K033. This federal funding is supplemented by funds from private donors.
