U.S. Department of Justice: Seeking Applications for “Anti-Human Trafficking National Training and Technical Assistance” Program

Deadline:  9 March 2017

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Office of Justice Programs (OJP), Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) is seeking applications for the Anti-Human Trafficking National Training and Technical Assistance for Enhanced Collaborative Model Law Enforcement Task Force Program.

This program furthers the Department’s mission by enhancing the capacity of state and local jurisdictions in preventing and reducing crime.

The Anti-Human Trafficking Training and Technical Assistance for Law Enforcement Task Forces Program, administered by BJA, is designed to provide national TTA resources that are critical to improving the capacity of state, local and tribal criminal justice systems to develop and implement anti-human trafficking task forces using the Enhanced Collaborative Model (ECM).

The ECM task forces, jointly funded by BJA and the Office for Victims of Crime (OVC), promote a multidisciplinary approach to combating all forms of human trafficking, using a victim-centered approach to investigating and prosecuting trafficking crimes, and providing quality services to trafficking victims.

The program combines the leadership of DOJ and the expertise of nationally recognized criminal justice practitioners and action research experts to deliver a wide variety of TTA to law enforcement and criminal justice systems involved in human trafficking task forces across the nation. Programs funded under this solicitation are intended to have a national impact.

Objectives

  • Assist current and future BJA-funded task forces in successfully establishing ECM task forces that include appropriate federal, state, and local agencies, as active and contributing members, to address all forms of human trafficking in a given jurisdiction or area.
  • Engage proactively with active ECM task force partners to assess progress, address challenges, and identify solutions.
  • Communicate regularly with BJA to assess the impact of TTA services on the ECM to Combat Human Trafficking program goals and progress of the individual sites.
  • Work collaboratively with BJA’s previously funded Human Trafficking TTA providers as well as the OVC Training and Technical Assistance Center to ensure that the ECM task forces receive appropriate training and technical assistance.
  • Assess existing training and coordinate the delivery of appropriate introductory and advanced training sessions for the ECM task forces or the separate components of the criminal justice system (e.g., law enforcement investigators, prosecutors, judges, etc.). Coordinate training activities with other existing or planned training to avoid duplication.
  • Provide appropriate training and technical assistance to unfunded human trafficking task forces, law enforcement agencies and other components of the criminal justice system to assist them in their efforts to combat human trafficking.
  • Provide content for BJA outreach materials to include, but not limited to, ECM-related websites, articles, BJA social media efforts, among others communication modalities.
