Vulnerable Adult Act (VAA) Redesign
The Vulnerable Adult Act (VAA), Minnesota §626.557, was passed in 1980 and establishes state policy for the protection of vulnerable adults and Minnesota’s adult protection system. The decision to explore redesigning the VAA reflects the changing demographics in our state as well as recognition of the challenges within the current statute. The scope of the redesign is the service response offered vulnerable adults reported to the Minnesota Adult Abuse Reporting Center (MAARC) as suspected of being abused, neglected, or financially exploited.
