The NoVo Foundation just announced The Life Story Grants funding opportunity, a $10 million, 3-year commitment for programs in the U.S that address sex trafficking. NoVo is inviting Letters of Inquiry now through April 19 for grants across six key issues: housing; medical needs; trauma and mental health; law enforcement; immigration; and systems impacting youth (e.g. schools, foster care).
Indigenous girls and women are a particular focus in the grants because the sex trade disproportionately harms Native girls and women. Practitioners in critical systems— like nurses, teachers, social workers, and individuals working in culturally specific community organizations—come into contact with people in sexual exploitation every day.
