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. 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 Alamo Area Rape Crisis Center, who will work in collaboration with the City of San Antonio Police Department to implement this project within Bexar County, Texas.
