To develop and maintain legal service delivery systems that maximize the impact of limited legal resources on older adults in greatest need. The ultimate goal of the grant opportunity is to protect and enhance essential rights and benefits of older persons in states across the country by utilizing the leadership of the State Legal Assistance Developer and key project partners to create and maintain coordinated, well integrated, and cost effective statewide legal service delivery systems. Such systems will include: integration of a low-cost senior legal helpline with IIIB legal services and other low-cost mechanisms to achieve cost-efficiency and maximum impact from limited legal resources; effective targeting of scarce resources to older persons in greatest social or economic need; focus on the most critical legal issues confronting target populations; and integration of the legal service delivery system with the broad aging service network.o
