This program intends to improve outcomes for children and youth who are victims of human trafficking by—

  • integrating human trafficking policy and programming at the state or Tribal level; and
  • enhancing coordinated, multidisciplinary, and statewide approaches to serving trafficked youth.

Category 1: Statewide or Tribal Jurisdiction-wide Response
OVC seeks applications under Category 1 for state or Tribal jurisdictions to identify the state or Tribe’s greatest barriers to identifying and assisting child and youth victims of sex and labor trafficking and/or to investigating and prosecuting these cases, and to develop a statewide or Tribal jurisdiction-wide strategy to address these challenges.

Under Category 1, OVC expects to make up to three awards of up to $1.5 million each for a 36-month period of performance to begin on October 1, 2022.

Category 2: Training and Technical Assistance (TTA)
OVC seeks applications under Category 2 to provide TTA to states and Tribes (both those that are funded under the OVC Improving Outcomes program and those that are not) in strengthening their cross-systems coordinated responses for child and youth victims of trafficking.

Under Category 2, OVC expects to make one award of up to $1 million for a 36-month period of performance to begin on October 1, 2022.
