Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $500,000)

The goal of the FY 2020 Housing Assistance Grants for Victims of Human Trafficking Program is to support housing assistance for victims of all forms of human trafficking throughout the United States, as defined by the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) of 2000, as amended. Funding through this solicitation supports programs that provide 6 to 24 months of transitional housing with support services to victims of human trafficking who are in need of housing as a result of human trafficking. Funding will be provided over a three-year project period. The Ruby’s Place Transitional Housing Program for Victims of Human Trafficking – Non-gendered program (HTNG) will serve the victims of human trafficking in the nine counties of the San Francisco Bay Area. The goal of the Transitional Housing for Victims of Human Trafficking – Non-gendered program is to provide safe, stable housing and appropriate services to victims of human trafficking. Ruby’s Place has identified gender non-conforming victims as an underserved population in our community and will build in policies and staffing that will particularly support that community in a non-gendered environment. The transitional housing program will be site-based, leased by the agency, and offered at no cost to program participants. Comprehensive support service and follow-up services will assist victims in transitioning to independent housing. The program will serve at least 18 survivors of human trafficking over three years.
