Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2020, $344,005)

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 GLOBAL PEHT CORP and is funded under the Services for Victims of Human Trafficking solicitation which is designed to provide direct services to victims of human trafficking.

GLOBAL PEHT Corp will partner with Love146 and The Salvation Army Bloom Initiative to develop capacity to serve human-trafficking victims in the following ways: l) PEHT will develop and strengthen anti-human trafficking services through the provision of culturally appropriate, trauma informed, comprehensive, and survivor-informed services in collaboration with local partners. 2) PEHT will develop a training plan with partners to increase victim identification in the Fairfield county region through outreach activities and targeted trainings. 3) PEHT will develop a strong referral network of anti-human trafficking service providers (including law enforcement and new and existing non-profit partners) that will meet the essential needs of each individual survivor. 4) PEHT will constantly improve our service delivery through data collection and evaluation.
