New Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) Funding Opportunity: FY19 Improving Outcomes for Child and Youth Victims of Human Trafficking

Deadline: July 1, 2019
Posted: May 31, 2019
 
OVC allocates more grant funding than any other federal agency to programs that provide direct services to victims of human trafficking. Through the FY 2019 Improving Outcomes for Child and Youth Victims of Human Trafficking solicitation, OVC seeks to improve outcomes for children and youth who are victims of labor and sex trafficking by —
• integrating human trafficking policy and programming at the state or tribal jurisdiction level and
• enhancing coordinated, multidisciplinary, and statewide approaches to serving trafficked youth.
 
Recognizing that each state/tribe is unique, applicants should identify the state or tribe’s greatest barriers to identifying and assisting child and youth victims of sex and labor trafficking and/or to investigating and prosecuting these trafficking cases, and propose a program to systematically address those barriers.
 
OVC expects to make up to four awards of up to $1.5 million with an estimated total amount awarded of up to $6 million. OVC expects to make the awards for a 36-month period of performance, to begin on October 1, 2019.
 
OVC will conduct a pre-application webinar on June 13, 2019, from 1–2 p.m., eastern time. OVC staff will review the solicitation requirements and conduct a question and answer session with interested potential applicants. Register now.
