This program’s purpose is to develop, expand, or strengthen a multidisciplinary approach to fight human trafficking. This solicitation requires two separate but coordinated applications; one application from an eligible lead law enforcement agency, and one from an eligible lead victim service organization. These two applications should be developed collaboratively and submitted as a pair.
Category 1 Development of Human Trafficking Task Forces
Task forces that have newly formed (formally operational less than 3 years) or have never received funding under the OJP Enhanced Collaborative Model Task Force Program are eligible to apply.
Category 2: Existing Human Trafficking Task Forces
Task forces that have been formally operational for a minimum of 3 years and can demonstrate strong task force leadership and structure and have a history of identifying trafficking victims and prosecuting traffickers are eligible to apply. Task forces that have previously received OJP Enhanced Collaborative Model Task Force Program funding for a grant that ends on or before September 30, 2021, are eligible to apply.
OVC anticipates making 18 awards under Category 1 (9 task forces) of up to $1.5 million per task force and up to 12 awards under Category 2 (6 task forces) of up to $1.5 million per task force. OVC expects to make awards for a 36-month period of performance, to begin on October 1, 2021.
During a pre-application webinar on Tuesday, May 18, 2021, OVC staff reviewed solicitation requirements and conducted a question and answer session with interested potential applicants.
