Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2018, $900,000)

The purpose of the FY 2018 Specialized Human Trafficking Training and Technical Assistance Program is to enhance the quality and efficiency of services available to assist victims of human trafficking by providing intensive training and technical assistance (TTA) to trafficking service providers and court personnel to assist them in developing and implementing effective interventions that meet the needs of human trafficking survivors. This solicitation focuses on three purpose areas that have been identified as fundamental to the identification, stabilization, and long-term independence of trafficking survivors. They are: Purpose Area 1 - Comprehensive Legal Services; Purpose Area 2 - Trauma-Informed Responses and Services; and Purpose Area 3- Increased Identification, Referrals, and Assistance of Human Trafficking in Court Settings.

With this award, the Coalition to Abolish Slavery and Trafficking will enhance the quality and quantity of legal services
provided to victims of human trafficking by assisting legal and social service providers in protecting their client’s legal rights—particularly victims’ rights—and the civil legal remedies and legal resources available to them. The TTA will also support the identification of clients’ legal needs and referrals to the most appropriate resources. CA/NCF
