Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA and Territories law enforcement agencies collaborating with nonprofit organizations to improve services for crime victims. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. The purpose of this program is to enhance the law enforcement and social services fields’ response to victims of human trafficking.

Overview

The purpose of this solicitation is to support enhanced collaborative model task forces to combat human trafficking, as defined by the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) of 2000. Each task force selected for funding will receive two separate grants: one from the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) to a victim service partner, and one from the Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) to a state, local, or tribal law enforcement agency partner.

Program-Specific Information

The purpose of this program is to develop, expand, or strengthen victim service programs for victims of human trafficking, to include enhancing the capacity of law enforcement and other stakeholders to identify victims and provide justice for those victims through the investigation and prosecution of their traffickers.

This program has two purpose areas:

Purpose Area 1: Development of Human Trafficking Task Forces will support human trafficking task forces that have recently formed and/or are still in the process of formalizing task force structure and protocols. Funding under this purpose area is intended to help task forces with critical first steps related to starting up a multidisciplinary task force. Successful applicants under Purpose Area 1 will dedicate the first 12–18 months of funding to formalizing task force structure, developing operational procedures, accessing professional development opportunities, delivering training to key stakeholders, and conducting a community assessment to identify potential areas of the community where sex and labor trafficking may be occurring. 

Task forces that have never received funding under the Enhanced Collaborative Model Task Force Program and those that received funding prior to FY 2017 but do not meet the definition of an established task force (defined under Purpose Area 2 below) are eligible to apply.

Purpose Area 2: Expanding Human Trafficking Task Force Effectiveness will support established task forces that may have previously received funding under the Enhanced Collaborative Model Task Force Program for a grant that ends on or before September 30,2020; have strong task force leadership and structure; and have a history of identifying trafficking victims and prosecuting traffickers. Purpose Area 2 allows task forces to compete for funding to expand their task force operations and partnerships, implement task force sustainability plans, and assist OJP in building the capacity of other task forces in the field.

Applications must be from a law enforcement and victim services provider partnership that agree to increase access to an array of services for all human trafficking victims.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

This funding announcement requires two separate but coordinated applications from each
human trafficking task force seeking funding: one application from a lead state, local, or tribal law enforcement agency (which includes state and local departments of public safety or agencies with public safety missions), and one application from a lead victim service organization (which may be a public agency or a nongovernmental organization). The two applications must be developed in collaboration with each other, and must be submitted as a pair, with each applicant naming the other as the primary partner.

Pursuant to 22 U.S.C. § 7105(b)(2) the following entities are eligible to apply:
(1) States and territories
(2) Units of local government
(3) Indian tribes
(4) Nonprofit, nongovernmental victims’ service organizations with the capacity to serve human trafficking victims (defined as an organization that is described in section 501(c)(3) of Title 26 and is exempt from taxation under 501(a) of such title). Entities which have received human trafficking grants from the Office for Victims of Crime and the Bureau of Justice Assistance in FY 2018 or FY 2019 to support their participation in multidisciplinary task forces are ineligible to apply unless the new proposed project would differ from or expand the existing funded project(s).

All recipients and subrecipients must forgo any profit or management fee. Nonprofit organizations that hold money in offshore accounts for the purpose of avoiding paying the tax described in 26 U.S.C. § 511(a) are not eligible to apply.

The following activities cannot be supported with grant funds:

- Holding Beds Grantees may not “hold beds” in a housing facility by charging their cost to the grant and keeping them empty until a victim needs the bed, when other victims need access to the beds, as this would be considered an unallowable contingency payment (see C.F.R. 200.433 (c)).
- Stipends/Incentives to Participate in Services Neither cash nor non-cash stipends or incentives may be paid to victims to encourage their participation in services.3
- Primary Prevention Activities The purpose of this funding is to support multidisciplinary task force operations; therefore, applicants should not propose primary prevention activities under this program.
