Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2021, $400,000)

The OVC Law Enforcement Human Trafficking Fellowship program supports one fellow to advise and support OVC on emerging and priority issues in the development and implementation of victim-centered and trauma-informed human trafficking investigations, prosecutions, and multidisciplinary approaches to identify victims and prosecute traffickers. Throughout the three-year period the Fellow will serve as a subject matter expert for OVC, ECM Task Forces and other agencies as called upon.  This project directly responds to OVC’s call for a practical plan to raise the functionality of our national and regional efforts in the fight against trafficking.
