Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2016, $137,946)

OVC awards fellowships to individuals to work with OVC on specific topics or purpose areas to enhance the efforts of OVC to facilitate the understanding, development, or enhancement of innovative programs, models, practices, and protocols that serve crime victims. Fellowships also foster the professional development of practitioners in the victim assistance field by providing them an opportunity to work closely with federal staff, contractors, grantees, and a myriad of public and private organizations in Washington, DC, and throughout the Nation.

The Human Trafficking Task Forces Fellowship will address the victim services component of human trafficking task forces, with an emphasis on addressing gaps in task force capacity to identify and rescue victims of labor trafficking, and to work collaboratively with law enforcement and victim service providers to ensure that all victims, including labor trafficking victims, receive needed services. The fellow will work closely with OVC human trafficking program specialists, BJA staff, and a BJA Trafficking Fellow to provide training, technical assistance, and other resources to task forces that need assistance.
