In recent examinations of Adult Protective Services (APS) programs across the country, APS administrators reported that enhancing APS investigation and response and developing best practices for interventions and program operations were significant, unmet needs. In an effort to help address this gap, the Administration on Aging is holding a competition to continue the National Adult Protective Services Resource Center program. The purpose of this National APS Resource Center (NAPS RC) is to provide current and relevant information and support to enhance the quality, consistency, and effectiveness of elder abuse prevention activities conducted by APS programs across the country.
