Funding Opportunity: OVC FY 2020 Improving Outcomes for Child and Youth Victims of Human Trafficking

Apply for the OVC FY 2020 Improving Outcomes for Child and Youth Victims of Human Trafficking solicitation.

OVC is seeking applications for states or tribes to develop, enhance, and coordinate programs and activities geared toward improving outcomes for child and youth victims of sex and labor trafficking. The overall goal of the program is to improve responses for child and youth victims of trafficking with a focus on coordination at the statewide or tribal jurisdiction level to create effective change across systems.

Recognizing that each jurisdiction is unique, applicants should identify the state or tribe’s greatest barriers to identifying and assisting child and youth victims of sex and labor trafficking and/or to investigating and prosecuting these trafficking cases, and propose a program to systematically address those barriers.

OVC anticipates making up to four awards of up to $1.5 million each for a 36-month period of performance, to begin on October 1, 2020.

OVC conducted an optional pre-application webinar on Friday, April 3, 2020, to review requirements and answer questions. View a recording and transcript of this webinar.
