Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2005, $700,000)

The purpose of this award, one of several projects under the Services for Trafficking Victims Discretionary Grant Program, is to allow the Salvation Army, Western Territory, Hawaiian and Pacific Island Division to develop victim service programs for persons who have been identified by federal law enforcement as victims of a severe form of trafficking during the pre-certification period. The Salvation Army, Western Territory, Hawaiian and Pacific Islands Division will provide comprehensive services to trafficking victims in the state of Hawaii and the Territory of American Samoa; build effective community service networks to respond to victims' needs; and provide training to increase awareness among criminal justice entities, social service providers, and the public of the rights and needs of trafficking victims over a 36-month period. This organization will also provide reimbursement to organizations on the islands of Guam and Saipan who are serving pre-certified trafficking victims, under the guidance of the Office for Victims of Crime.
