Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2019, $650,000)

The goal of the FY 2019 Direct Services to Support Victims of Human Trafficking Program is to enhance the quality and quantity of services available to victims of human trafficking, as defined by the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) of 2000, as amended. Funding through this program supports specialized services to victims of sex and labor trafficking, as well as for efforts to increase the capacity of communities to respond to human trafficking through the development of interagency partnerships, professional training, and public awareness activities over a three-year project period.

This award made to Love146 under Purpose Area 2 will develop and implement a post-secondary educational and vocational program designed to meet the unique needs of human trafficking victims by enhancing the quality and quantity of economic empowerment and education services —an identified gap in Love146’s geographic reach and for the organization’s target population—available to assist victims of human trafficking throughout the State of Connecticut.
