Description


The purpose of this program is to develop, expand, or strengthen a multidisciplinary approach to better respond to human trafficking.

This collaborative approach must include victim and social service providers; law enforcement; prosecution personnel; individuals with lived experience; and a range of other governmental and nongovernmental partners that work together to provide access to a diverse set of services for trafficking victims and to seek justice on their behalf.

OVC expects to make between 20 to 30 awards total (10–15 task forces) across all categories.

Purpose Area 1: Development of New Local or Tribal Human Trafficking Task Forces

Funding in this category will help new task forces with critical first steps related to starting a multidisciplinary task force and establishing a strong foundation of task force co-leadership structure, clear roles and responsibilities, and internal processes and protocols.

OVC expects to make awards of $500,000 to $700,000 each for a 36-month period of performance to begin on October 1, 2024.

Purpose Area 2: Expansion of Local or Tribal ECM Human Trafficking Task Forces (Previously Funded by OJP)

This funding will support expanded task force partnerships; refinement and implementation of existing and new protocols; meaningful survivor engagement; and continued commitment to implement a diverse set of strategic approaches that are victim-centered and trauma- and survivor-informed.

OVC expects to make awards of $600,000 to $900,000 each for a 36-month period of performance to begin on October 1, 2024.

Purpose Area 3: Enhanced Support for Statewide Task Forces (New or Previously OJP-funded)

Funding in this category will assist with a statewide, multidisciplinary response to human trafficking for a statewide task force at any stage of development (new or previously OJP-funded). 

OVC expects to make awards of $800,000 to $1,000,000 each for a 36-month period of performance to begin on October 1, 2024.
