Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $499,999)

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. Heartland Family Service (HFS) serves trafficking victims in the Interstate 80 and 29 corridors in east central Nebraska and southwest Iowa. Under this project, HFS’ Heartland Housing Sanctuary (Sanctuary), a shelter program specifically for victims of human trafficking, will be expanded to include provision for ten units of facility-based transitional housing and ten units of short-term scattered-site housing. The project will serve 25 to 30 clients. CA/NCF
