Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2019, $919,476)

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 direct services to victims of sex trafficking 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 Catholic Charities of Louisville, Inc., is funded under Sustaining Capacity to Provide Comprehensive Services which is designed to provide funding to experienced service providers to offer comprehensive services. Catholic Charities of Louisville (CCL) will implement the Central Kentucky Comprehensive Services Project to sustain capacity to provide services to survivors of human trafficking through implementation of a comprehensive services model. This project will focus efforts on Central Kentucky. This initiative will include in-house services, and collaborations with community partners for housing, mental health services, medical services, and education services. CCL will participate in local coalition and task force meetings, collaborating with community partners to provide training, technical assistance, and information on accessing victim services and will improve response and access to services.
