Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $500,000)

The goal of the FY 2020 Housing Assistance Grants for Victims of Human Trafficking Program is to support housing assistance for victims of all forms of human trafficking throughout the United States, as defined by the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) of 2000, as amended. Funding through this solicitation supports programs that provide 6 to 24 months of transitional housing with support services to victims of human trafficking who are in need of housing as a result of human trafficking. Funding will be provided over a three-year project period. First Nations Community HealthSource (FNCH), New Mexico's Urban Indian health center and a Federally Qualified Health Center, will serve adult homeless human trafficking (HT) victims, including the most vulnerable populations of American Indian (Al), refugees, and LGBTQ members, in Albuquerque and the surrounding tribal areas in New Mexico. The service area will be predominantly southeast Albuquerque, where FNCH is located, which has a large concentration of homeless individuals in the City. Specifically, FNCH will provide short-term housing assistance and permanent housing placement and case management services to a minimum of 40 adult HT victims at the end of three years. A total of 40 units of short-term housing and 40 units of permanent housing will be provided. Support services will assist victims in retaining and sustaining their housing and integrating into their communities. These services will include but not be limited to transportation, job development, behavioral health, medical, dental, Medicaid/SNAP enrollment, HIV/HCV testing and prevention education, basic living skills education, harm reduction and others. FNCH will work collaboratively with community partners including the State HT Task Force members, who are serving HT victims for referrals and support services. CA/NCF
