Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2015, $642,563)

The Enhanced Collaborative Model to Combat Human Trafficking Program is designed to support the development and enhancement of multidisciplinary human trafficking task forces that implement collaborative approaches to combat all forms of human trafficking, including sex and labor trafficking of both foreign nationals and U.S. citizens (of all genders and ages), within the United States. The task force will implement victim-centered, collaborative, and sustainable approaches to: identify victims of all types of human trafficking; investigate and prosecute sex trafficking and labor trafficking cases at the local, state, tribal, or federal levels; and, address the individualized needs of victims through the provision of a comprehensive array of quality services. Awards will be made to a lead law enforcement agency and a lead victim service provider within each task force. This award will be made to the International Institute of Buffalo, who will work in collaboration with the Erie County Sheriff's Office to implement this project throughout the 17 counties of the Western District of New York.
