The overarching goal of this program is to increase the quantity and quality of victim-centered services available to assist American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) victims of human trafficking in urban areas. This will be accomplished by developing the capacity of urban Indian centers to meet victims’ needs by providing a comprehensive range of services either in-house or through referrals to a network of collaborative partners.

OVC will make awards under two program purpose areas.

  • develop or enhance their organizational capacity to provide services to urban AI/AN victims of human trafficking,
  • develop and sustain collaborative partnerships,

Under Purpose Area 1, OVC expects to make up to eight awards of up to $475,000 each for a 36-month period of performance to begin on October 1, 2022.

Purpose Area 2: Training and Technical Assistance
