Grants to USA and territories local, tribal, and state government agencies, nonprofit organizations, IHEs, and Tribes to assist young victims of human trafficking. Applicants are advised to complete all required registrations prior to applying. Funding is intended to support services that provide for the security, safety, and healing of minor victims of sex trafficking.
The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Office of Justice Programs (OJP), Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) is seeking applications to support services for minor victims of sex trafficking. This program furthers the Department’s mission by enhancing the field’s response to victims of human trafficking.
The purpose of this program is to develop, expand, or strengthen victim service programs for minor victims of sex trafficking, whose victimization occurred when they were under the age of 18. This program will provide funding for services to victims of human trafficking, as defined by the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) of 2000.
Organizations funded under this program will provide (directly and through partnerships) services that minor victims of sex trafficking often require to address their needs for safety, security, and healing (see Appendix B). They will also be expected to integrate into their programming developmentally appropriate and evidence-based practices.
While this program is focused on providing services to minor victims of sex trafficking, organizations should be aware that these victims could have also been exploited in labor trafficking. Applicants should address how they would respond to the needs of victims who are subjected to both sex trafficking and labor trafficking.
While funds are intended primarily for direct services to minor victims of sex trafficking, services under this program can also extend to the victim’s children and supportive non-offending parents, caregivers, sponsors, and guardians, as these services impact the minor’s safety, recovery, and success.
Under the federal Trafficking Victims Protection Act, a victim of trafficking is defined as a person who has been subjected to a “severe form of trafficking in persons,” which, as defined in 22 U.S.C. § 7102(11), means—
