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 U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants will enhance services by providing intensive training and technical assistance on trauma-informed responses and services to OVC's trafficking service providers.
