BILL NUMBER:S4235

TITLE OF BILL:
An act
to amend the executive law, in relation to developing and promoting
senior center based domestic violence prevention programs

PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL:
This bill would direct the NYS Office
for the Prevention of Domestic Violence (OPDV) to develop domestic
violence prevention programs to be utilized by senior centers
throughout the state.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS:
Section 1 adds a new paragraph to subdivision 3 of section 575 of the
executive law.

Section 2 sets the effective date.

JUSTIFICATION:
With a growing concern regarding elder abuse in this
state, it is also important to remain aware of the occurrence of
domestic violence amongst senior citizens. Senior centers serve as a
gathering place for many seniors in their community, making them an
ideal environment to offer domestic violence prevention programs.
Developing prevention programs designed specifically for seniors will
be especially helpful as seniors often are more reluctant to seek out
help when it comes to such sensitive issues.

PRIOR LEGISLATIVE HISTORY:
This is a new bill.

FISCAL IMPLICATIONS:
Minimal, programs already in existence would
simply be altered to meet the needs of seniors citizens.

EFFECTIVE DATE:
This act shall take effect immediately.
