OVC is seeking applications for states or tribes to develop, enhance, and coordinate programs and activities geared toward improving outcomes for child and youth victims of sex and labor trafficking.
The overall goal of the program is to improve responses for child and youth victims of trafficking, with a focus on coordination at the statewide or tribal jurisdiction level, to create effective change across systems. Recognizing that each jurisdiction is unique, applicants should identify the state or tribe’s greatest barriers to identifying and assisting child and youth victims of sex and labor trafficking and/or to investigating and prosecuting these trafficking cases, and propose a program to systematically address those barriers.
OVC expects to make two awards of up to $1.5 million each for a 36-month period of performance to begin on October 1, 2021.
OVC will conduct one pre-application webinar on Thursday, May 13, 2021, from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. eastern time. Participation in the webinar is optional. OVC staff will review the solicitation requirements and conduct a question and answer session with interested potential applicants.
