About The Elder Rights Training Project

The National Elder Rights Training Project provides training on a wide range of law and aging topics to legal services providers and members of the Aging Services Network nationwide. Priority on-site training is offered to:

  • States and partnering entities involved in the Administration on Aging’s Model Approaches to Statewide Legal Assistance Systems demonstration grants. This program is designed to create well integrated legal and aging service delivery systems that target scarce resources to older adults in the greatest social or economic need.
  • Aging and Disability Resource Centers (ADRC) and Area Agency on Aging (AAA) staff involved in identifying and assisting older persons facing legal challenges to their independence and financial security.

Preference will be given to organizations that can commit to:

  • Marketing or publicizing the training event to the audience(s) targeted for the specific training;
  • Inviting a diverse range of aging and legal professionals;
  • Securing a space for the training;
  • Registering participants;
  • Providing or arranging for the rental of audio-visual or other training equipment; and
  • Collecting evaluation forms or other data.
