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. Covenant House Alaska (CHA) will address the critical need for rapid rehousing for victims ages 18-24, provide short-term rental assistance, and access to specialized supportive services (e.g., substance abuse treatment, mental health services, legal education, job training, etc.) for victims of human trafficking ages 13-24. The goal of this project is to provide transitional housing (e.g., transitional and rapid rehousing), short-term housing assistance (e.g., rental assistance) and appropriate trauma-informed, victim-centered services that address the housing, transportation, employment, and service needs of victims of human trafficking and lead to their increased autonomy, self-sufficiency, increased safety and well-being.
