This program seeks to support OVC’s anti-trafficking grantees and other stakeholders through the provision of training and technical assistance (TTA) and the development of tools and resources. As of January 2023, OVC manages nearly 500 anti-trafficking awards, and the majority of these awards support direct services for trafficking survivors, including case management, housing, legal services, and more.
Applicants are invited to apply under two program purpose areas.
Purpose Area 1: TTA for Legal Services
The overarching goal of Purpose Area 1 is to provide TTA to increase human trafficking victims’ access to the full spectrum of legal remedies by enhancing the quality and quantity of legal services available across the country for human trafficking survivors.
Under Purpose Area 1, OVC anticipates making one award of up to $2 million for up to a 36-month period of performance, to begin on October 1, 2023.
Purpose Area 2: Enhancing Grantee Responses to Labor Trafficking
Under this purpose area, the grantee will provide technical assistance to OVC’s anti-trafficking grantees across various programs in enhancing their responses to labor trafficking.
Under Purpose Area 2, OVC anticipates making one award of up to $1 million for up to a 36-month period of performance, to begin on October 1, 2023.
