Request a Grant Writer

Grants to Kansas private or public nonprofit organizations and local or state government agencies for law enforcement and victims services to address human trafficking and exploitation of children. The purpose of this fund is to support human trafficking prevention training for law enforcement agencies, as well as treatment, care, and other services for victims.

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, twenty-four 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 not be viewed as an entitlement project, but, rather, short-term support for new or expanded innovative grant project activities.
