Register for the pre-application webinar for the FY18 Integrated Services for Minor Victims of Human Trafficking solicitation to learn more about this new program designed to enhance the quality and quantity of direct services available to assist minor (under the age of 18) victims of human trafficking. Organizations funded under this program will—
• provide (directly and through partnerships) a comprehensive array of services that minor victims of sex trafficking and labor trafficking often require to address their needs for safety, security, and healing;
• ensure that minors who have been trafficked are identified and referred for appropriate services; and
• document the progress of the project.
This program places a priority on funding direct services provided by organizations with the capacity to implement a highly collaborative and comprehensive service model, engaging all appropriate community resources, to address the needs of minor victims of all forms of human trafficking.
The Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) expects to make up to 40 awards through this solicitation totaling up to $20 million for a 36-month period of performance, to begin no later than October 1, 2019.
The pre-application webinar on February 20, 2019, from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. e.t. will offer an overview of the 2019 requirements and answer questions from attendees. Participation in the webinar is optional, but strongly encouraged.
