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. This award made to First Fruit Ministries will support the 5.11 House, a project that serves victims of human trafficking within the lower Cape Fear region of North Carolina, encompassing New Hanover, Pender, and Brunswick counties, and the City of Wilmington. The transitional housing program will be for victims of trafficking who are focused on rebuilding their lives, self-sufficiency, and gaining affordable housing in the community. The project will serve 18 households in a year. Survivors and their families will be connected to mainstream resources and community-based supportive care services. Life-skills, mental health treatment, a full array of free primary medical care, case management, job assistance, housing navigation services, financial assistance, and transportation assistance will be provided to residents. 5.11 House will be housing first, trauma-informed, and use harm-reduction.
