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. The International Rescue Committee, Inc. in Sacramento (IRC), in partnership with Women Escaping a Violent Environment, Inc. (WEAVE), will provide housing assistance and related services to survivors of all forms of human trafficking, including foreign-born and domestic, sex and labor, male, female and LGBTQ adult victims throughout Sacramento and the Northern California counties of Alpine, Amador, Butte, Calaveras, Colusa, Del Norte, El Dorado, Glenn, Humboldt, Lake, Lassen, Marin, Mendocino, Modoc, Napa, Nevada, Placer, Plumas, San Joaquin, Shasta, Sierra, Siskiyou, Solano, Sonoma, Sutter, Tehama, Trinity, Yolo, and Yuba. IRC in Sacramento will create a rapid rehousing program (RRHP) that will provide transitional housing assistance to each client for 6 – 12 months and enhance the housing services and supportive services available for victims of all forms of trafficking. The RRHP utilizes the core components of rapid rehousing: identifying flexible, appropriate housing options; providing rent, move in, and basic needs short-term assistance; and optional case management and supportive services. This program will provide transitional housing for 40 victims and their households, 30 of whom will receive services through IRC and 10 who will be served through the proposed sub-grantee, WEAVE, for 40 housing units.
