The grantee for this three-year Legal Hotlines project will target low-income seniors in remote, rural Kentucky, seniors with low-literacy levels and the disabled. The Legal Hotline project will partner with the State library system, senior center staff, nursing home ombudsman program staff and other senior services staff. The goal of this Legal Hotline project is to provide legal and non-legal advice and referral, while expanding and strengthening the existing hotline to low-income rural seniors. The objectives of this Legal Hotline project are: 1) to expand and strengthen the HelpLine's services by emphasizing the use of technology; 2) to design a Pilot Rural Outreach Project; and 3) to establish a program to assist seniors, and provide training to volunteer attorneys. The anticipated outcomes are: legal assistance provided to 13,100 seniors over three years; statistical data provided by the Pilot Rural Outreach Project; methodology and data disseminated to other senior legal hotlines, the Administration on Aging, AARP, and other stakeholders in the senior hotline community; educational materials for seniors provided; service providers and volunteer attorneys consulted on consumer law issues; and a legal assistance hotline will be established and helpline services will be available. The products are a final report; dissemination materials; and training materials on predatory lending.
