Grant Description
Grants to Kansas nonprofit organizations and local or state government agencies for law enforcement projects and victim services that address human trafficking and the exploitation of children. Funding is intended for training programs for law enforcement officers, and to support care, treatment, and other services for victims of human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation of a child. The HTVAF Grant funding is for innovative projects.

Through the Grant Program, the Victims Services Division seeks to ensure that Kansas crime victims 1) are aware of their rights, 2) have their rights protected, 3) are aware of the services available to them, and 4) have access to quality services. 

Activities may include, but are not limited to, 24-hour crisis intervention and support or emergency services; counseling; assistance with compensation claims, medical advocacy, immigration advocacy and associated fees, civil court advocacy (for example, assistance with divorce decrees from originating country), creditors, community referrals and restitution, with the exception that no direct compensation may be paid to a crime victim; prosecutor or court-related services; shelter support counseling, social services support, and criminal justice advocacy.

HTVAF grant projects should be viewed as short-term support for new or expanded innovative grant project activities.
