Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $350,000)

The goal of the FY 2020 Services for Victims of Human Trafficking Programs 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 is made to International Rescue Committee, Inc., and is funded under the Services for Victims of Human Trafficking solicitation which is designed to provide direct services to victims of human trafficking. The International Rescue Committee, Inc. in Turlock (IRC), in partnership with Alliance for Community Transformation, will strengthen its capacity to provide services to survivors of all forms of human trafficking, including foreign-born and domestic, sex and labor, male, female and LGBTQ adult victims and train key community stakeholders on comprehensive response protocols to ensure victims are properly identified and referred for appropriate services throughout the rural Central Valley and nearby rural mountain counties. IRC Turlock will target services to serve the three fully rural counties of Mariposa, Mono, and Tuolumne, and serve the two partially rural counties of Merced and Stanislaus. CA/NCF
