This fiscal year (FY) 2015 Status Report on the Federal Strategic Action Plan for services to victims of human trafficking in the United States presents charts that show what actions have been taken by various Federal agencies in implementing the Action Plan, along with the years in which each action was taken or anticipated (each of FY years 2013 - 17 and "Beyond"), its current status, and a comment on each action.
Separate charts with the aforementioned information are provided for each of the "overarching themes" of the Action Plan and each of the eight objectives of the Action Plan. The overarching themes are 1) the integration of survivor experiences and input and 2) standard of care. The eight objectives are 1) to provide Federal Leadership and direction to improve victim services; 2) coordinate victim services effectively through collaboration across multiple agencies; 3) establish a baseline knowledge of human trafficking and victim service needs through rigorous research and reporting; 4) support the development of effective responses to the needs of human trafficking victims; 5) increase victim identification through coordinated public outreach and awareness efforts; 6) build capacity to better identify and serve victims through targeted training and technical assistance; 7) foster collaborations and partnerships to enhance the community response to human trafficking; and 8) improve access to victim services by removing systemic barriers.
