CFPB Resource to Prevent Elder Financial Abuse
Posted June 11, 2020 by CUNA Advocacy

The CFPB released an online resource to help communities form networks to increase their capacity to prevent and respond to elder financial abuse.  The Elder Fraud Prevention and Response Networks Development Guide (Networks Development Guide) offers planning tools, templates, and exercises to help communities create a collaborative network to fight elder fraud or refresh or expand an existing network.

The Networks Development Guide is an online tool that includes a meeting model on how to set up a retreat and training event to rally stakeholders and community leaders. The CFPB will be offering presentations and webinars in the near future to walk stakeholders through the Networks Development Guide and provide tips on how to use it.
