M4A's Living Well Alabama Program staff deserves a big SHOUT OUT! The Administration on Community Living (ACL) federal agency has chosen many of the LWA program outreach and education materials as "best practices" and is making them available to other programs across the country!

Videos from the Federal Trade Commission may not feature a cast of celebrity actors, but they’re still entertaining. Produced by the nation’s consumer protection agency, these videos offer practical, useful, and memorable messages that can save you money, time, and aggravation. And they’re free.
ACL wants to hear your best thoughts and ideas for the future activities of the Elder Justice Coordinating Council (EJCC). The EJCC coordinates activities related to elder abuse, neglect, and exploitation across the federal government. We want to know what issues you think the EJCC should prioritize over the next two years.
You can submit comments electronically to email@example.com with “Thoughts and Ideas” in the subject line through September 30, 2019.
What we are looking for:
Comments, thoughts, and ideas about any aspect of the Elder Justice Coordinating Council. Examples of questions you can address include:
How have the EJCC’s past activities benefitted you or your affiliated programs?
What activities, tools, resources, or components could most effectively advance elder justice at the state and local levels?
How could the EJCC benefit the larger elder justice community?
What is the best way to measure the EJCC’s impact and effectiveness?
What we are not looking for:
Please do not use this mailbox to report suspicions of abuse, neglect, or exploitation. Any suspected abuse, neglect or financial exploitation should be reported to your state’s Adult Protective Services. ACL is also not authorized to receive personally identifiable information beyond the contact information of the person submitting input. We will not review any comment that includes any other personally identifiable information such as names, addresses, phone numbers, or Social Security numbers. Read the full public input invitation.
