Applicants must also describe how the program would leverage existing victim assistance, law enforcement, and child welfare efforts against human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation of children and youth in the state or in the tribal jurisdiction. Applicants are urged to begin in advance of the February 13, 2017, deadline. Visit www.ovc.gov/grants/webinars.html to view a recorded webinar about this funding opportunity.
