Apply for the OJP FY 2020 Enhanced Collaborative Model Task Force to Combat Human Trafficking solicitation.
OVC and the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) are seeking applications to develop or support multidisciplinary task forces to combat human trafficking. This program has two purpose areas:
Purpose Area 1: Development of Human Trafficking Task Forces: will support human trafficking task forces that have recently formed and are still in the process of formalizing task force structure and protocols. Funding under this purpose area is intended to help task forces with critical first steps related to starting up a multidisciplinary task force.
Purpose Area 2: Expanding Human Trafficking Task Force Effectiveness: allows task forces to compete for funding to expand their task force operations and partnerships, implement task force sustainability plans, and assist OJP in building the capacity of other task forces in the field.
Each task force selected for funding will receive two separate grants: one from OVC to a victim service partner, and one from BJA to a state, local, or tribal law enforcement agency partner.
OVC and BJA anticipate making 18 awards under Purpose Area 1 (9 task forces) of up to $1.5 million per task force and up to 10 awards under Purpose Area 2 (5 task forces) of up to $1.5 million per task force. OVC expects to make awards for a 36-month period of performance, to begin on October 1, 2020.
OVC and BJA conducted an optional pre-application webinar on Monday, March 30, 2020, to review requirements and answer questions. View a recording and transcript of this webinar.
