Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2019, $580,566)

The goal of the FY 2019 Direct Services to Support Victims of Human Trafficking Program is to enhance the quality and quantity of services available to victims of human trafficking, as defined by the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) of 2000, as amended. Funding through this program supports specialized services to victims of sex and labor trafficking, as well as for efforts to increase the capacity of communities to respond to human trafficking through the development of interagency partnerships, professional training, and public awareness activities over a three-year project period. This award made to the International Rescue Committee (IRC), which is funded under Purpose Area 2, is designed to address the gaps in housing, employment, and education services and enhance quality and quantity of those services for victims of all forms of human trafficking through a strengthened and reinvigorated partnership with A New Leaf (ANL). These services include but are not limited to: specialized emergency shelter, short-term housing assistance, transitional housing, rapid rehousing, vocational/skills training, financial counseling, job readiness assistance, education programs and assistance in obtaining educational and professional certifications.
