Administration on Community Living Providing Opportunities for Feedback for Draft APS Guidelines
Dear EJC Members:

We wanted to make you aware of an opportunity that the Administration on Community Living (ACL) has provided to participate in a listening session for the recently released draft voluntary guidelines for state Adult Protective Services Systems.

Please see the information below to participate and to review the guidelines.

From the ACL Notice:

First Public Listening Session: Wednesday, August 26, 2015 - 2:30pm ET - 3:30pm ET

Deadline for Comments: Friday, October 30, 2015
Last month ACL released Draft Voluntary Consensus Guidelines for State APS Systems. These draft guidelines were developed by experts in the field of APS and adult maltreatment based on the best research available on what works in APS and similar systems.
From staff, clients, and families, to those making and receiving referrals, the network of people and organizations that interact with APS is vast. If you are a part of this diverse network, we want to hear from you.
Share your feedback on the draft guidelines by calling into a listening session or submitting a comment by October 30. The first public listening session is Wednesday, August 26 at 2:30pm ET. ACL is also hosting targeted listening sessions to hear from those working in the APS, aging, disability, and legal services networks as well as those working with tribes.
