Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $443,074)

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. Catholic Charities of Louisville (CCL) will implement the Central KY Human Trafficking Housing Assistance Project to build capacity to provide safe, stable housing and supportive services to survivors of human trafficking. This project will focus efforts on Central Kentucky, where more cases are being identified and more survivors are in need of housing assistance. Service provision will include accessing short-term housing for a period of 6-24 months, with additional supportive services available to survivors as appropriate. Housing services will be provided to promote safety and increased stability for survivors. CCL will collaborate with community partners for job assistance, mental health services and other services as needed. Referrals will be made and received from community partners to ensure service provision for survivors’ individual needs if requested. Implementation of the goals and objectives of the Central Kentucky Housing Assistance Project by CCL will enhance housing stability for those that have been trafficked for sex or labor through capacity building and access to safe, stable housing for survivors.
