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. FamilyTime Crisis and Counseling Center will provide transitional housing (18 units) to 25 victims in the Greater Houston area (Harris, Fort Bend, Montgomery, Galveston, Waller, Brazoria, Austin, Liberty, and Chambers counties) for a period of three years. The project will provide identified victims of human trafficking scatter-site transitional housing based on the “Housing First” model. Survivors will be able to choose the communities and geographic locations they want to live in based on their individual need for transportation, proximity to jobs, size of family, child-care, safety, security factors, and affordability. The project implementation plan will focus on i) assisting victims in finding suitable housing, ii) assisting them with move-in expenses and activities, iii) provide rental assistance and supportive services throughout their participation in the housing program, iv) assist with move-in expenses (deposits) for those moving to permanent housing, and vi) offer voluntary follow-up services for one year after financial housing assistance ends.
