Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2016, $748,311)

The Enhanced Collaborative Model to Combat Human Trafficking Program is designed to support the development and enhancement of multidisciplinary human trafficking task forces that implement collaborative approaches to combat all forms of human trafficking, including sex and labor trafficking of both foreign nationals and U.S. citizens (of all genders and ages), within the United States. The task force will implement victim-centered, collaborative and sustainable approaches to: identify victims of all types of human trafficking; investigate and prosecute sex trafficking and labor trafficking cases at the local, state, tribal, and federal levels; and, address the individualized needs of victims through the provision of a comprehensive array of quality services. Awards will be made to a lead law enforcement agency and a lead victim service provider within each task force. This award will be made to the YMCA of the Greater Houston Area, who will work in collaboration with the City of Houston Police Department to implement this project within the Houston Metro Area.
