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, and federal levels; and, address the individualized needs of victims through the provision of a comprehensive array of quality services. This award will be made to Communities in Schools of the Heart of Texas, which will work in collaboration with the McLennan County Sheriff's Office to implement this project in McLennan, Falls, Bosque, Hill, Limestone and Freestone Counties in Texas.
