This program intends to improve outcomes for children and youth who are victims of human trafficking by—

  • integrating human trafficking policy and programming at the state or Tribal level; and
  • encouraging coordinated, multidisciplinary, and statewide approaches to serving trafficked youth.

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 investigating and prosecuting these trafficking cases, and propose a program to systematically address those barriers.

OVC anticipates making up to four awards of up to $1.5 million each for up to a 36-month period of performance, to begin on October 1, 2023.
