    Summary

    The purpose of this program is to enhance the quality and quantity of specialized services available to assist victims of human trafficking. The overarching goal of this program is to enhance the quality and quantity of services available to assist all victims of human trafficking to achieve their goals, which may include increased autonomy and self-sufficiency, and increased feelings of safety and well-being.


    The overarching goal of this program is to enhance the quality and quantity of services available to assist all victims of human trafficking in achieving their goals, which may include increased independence and self-sufficiency, and increased feelings of safety and well-being. Grantees funded through this solicitation will be expected to engage in all of the following activities in order to meet program goals and objectives:

    • Provide comprehensive services for victims of all forms of human trafficking, either in-house or through community partnerships;
    • Work in collaboration with federal, state, and local law enforcement, local service providers, and community- and faith-based organizations to develop comprehensive response protocols to ensure that trafficking victims are identified and referred for appropriate services;
    • Conduct training and public awareness activities for professionals and community members in order to improve their knowledge of human trafficking and their ability to identify and respond to victims; and
    • Conduct data collection and action research activities and evaluation to determine if the program is meeting stated goals and objectives. (Note: 2 to 7 percent of the total project budget, including match funds, must be dedicated to action research activities.)


    In FY2018, OVC will support projects in three purpose areas:

    • Comprehensive Services. This purpose area will provide funding to victim service providers with a demonstrated history of providing comprehensive services to victims of human trafficking. Comprehensive services include a range of services that victims of human trafficking often need in order to address their needs for safety, security, and healing. These services include, but are not limited to, case management, shelter, medical care, dental care, mental health treatment/counseling, substance abuse treatment, legal services, education, training, employment assistance, and transportation assistance.
    • Comprehensive Services for Sustained Caseloads. This purpose area will provide funding to victim service providers with a demonstrated history of providing comprehensive services to a sustained caseload of a large number of victims of human trafficking. Comprehensive services include a range of services that victims of human trafficking often need in order to address their needs for safety, security, and healing. These services include, but are not limited to, case management, shelter, medical care, dental care, mental health treatment/counseling, substance abuse treatment, legal services, education, training, employment assistance, and transportation assistance. Applicants should demonstrate a sustained significant caseload of trafficking victims and a high need in their jurisdiction for services (for example, the use of waitlists for certain services).
    • Capacity Building. This purpose area is designed to strengthen the capacity of victim service providers who have experience serving victims of human trafficking and/or related populations (e.g., victims of domestic violence, victims of sexual assault, and/or runaway and homeless youth, etc.) but who currently have a limited capacity to implement the comprehensive services model due to limited staff and/or partnerships to fully meet the needs of human trafficking victims. Under this purpose area, grantees will carry out a planning phase during the first year of the project for the delivery of comprehensive services in collaboration with community partners. In years 2 and 3 of the project period, grantees will provide comprehensive services to victims of human trafficking

    Funds awarded through this OVC cooperative agreement are intended primarily to support the cost of direct services that promote victim safety and stability in the aftermath of victimization, leading to the goal of independence and economic self-sufficiency. OVC does not set time limits on services and supports the provision of ongoing case management when there are no other specialized programs to provide case management services; however, funds awarded through this program are not intended to provide long-term financial support to trafficking victims.
