Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2016, $600,000)

The purpose of this award, one of many projects funded under the Specialized Services for Victims of Human Trafficking Grant Program, is to enhance the quality and quantity of services available to assist victims of human trafficking, as defined by the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) of 2000, as amended, by enhancing interagency collaboration and the coordinated community response to victims of human trafficking, and through the provision of high-quality, specialized services that address the individual needs of trafficking victims over a three year project period.
The Center Against Sexual and Family Violence will leverage various local, state, and federal resources for the provision of case management, emergency shelter, basic needs assistance, translation services and other support services for all victims of human trafficking identified through this initiative within El Paso and Hudspeth Counties in Texas and Dona Ana County in New Mexico. In addition, the program will support efforts to increase the capacity of communities to respond to human trafficking victims through the development of interagency partnerships, professional training, and public awareness activities.
