Description

The purpose of the Enhanced Collaborative Model to Combat Human Trafficking Program is to support the development and enhancement of multidisciplinary human trafficking task forces that implement collaborative approaches to combating all forms of human trafficking within the United States' sex trafficking and labor trafficking of foreign nationals and U.S. citizens (of all sexes and ages). OVC and BJA intend for funding through this FY 2017 program to be used to enhance the effectiveness of multidisciplinary task forces that are implementing victim-centered and coordinated approaches to identify victims of all types of human trafficking, addressing the individualized needs of victims through quality services, and investigating and prosecuting human trafficking cases at the local, state, tribal, and federal levels. Through this solicitation, OVC and BJA will make awards to support law enforcement and victim service provider efforts within human trafficking task forces. Within each geographic region covered by a task force, two separate awards will be made (one to a lead law enforcement agency and one to a lead victim service provider); however, the total amount of funding that will be awarded for each task force will not exceed $1.5 million. The law enforcement and victim service provider applicants must submit separate but coordinated proposals that outline how this funding will be used over a 3-year project period to combat human trafficking within the specific geographic area, in coordination with other key members of the task force, including the U.S. Attorney's Office (USAO); local prosecutor's office; local, state, and federal law enforcement; and community and system-based service providers.
