Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2019, $348,684)

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 direct services to victims of sex trafficking 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 under Purpose Area 1 to New Life Center aims to address the problem of human trafficking and increase the awareness, availability, and accessibility of high-quality comprehensive, trauma-informed, survivor-centered, and culturally and linguistically appropriate services for victims of human trafficking in Maricopa County, Arizona. New Life Center will engage in capacity building, direct service, data collection and action research activities in order to meet the stated goal and objectives of this project. The major project objectives include: (1) assist victims of human trafficking with achieving their individual goals through the delivery of comprehensive services; (2) enhance interagency collaboration and coordinated community response to victims of human trafficking; and (3) conduct data collection and OVC-approved action research activities to determine if the program is meeting stated goals and objectives. New Life Center will submit annual action research reports to OVC and a final comprehensive action research report, as required per the solicitation. CA/NCF
