The goal of PEMS is to measurably and substantially reduce the prevalence of human trafficking in targeted populations in partner countries and jurisdictions through innovative interventions driven by research, monitoring, evaluation, and learning, and the expansion of partnerships with government, academia, civil society organizations, international organizations, and the private sector.
The TIP Office leads the United States’ global engagement in the fight against human trafficking to combat human trafficking through the “3P” paradigm:
- Prosecuting traffickers;
- Protecting trafficking victims, and
- Preventing trafficking in persons.
- The award ceiling is $15 million.

- U.S.-based and foreign non-profits, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), for-profit organizations, public international organizations (PIOs), and institutions of higher education are eligible to apply for funding under this solicitation.
- For-profit organizations are not permitted, once an award has been granted, to generate profits from grant-funded activities without explicit TIP Office approval.
- The Department of State’s Office of the Procurement Executive must provide additional approval for grants awarded to for-profit entities.
- Foreign governments are not eligible to apply, although governments may be beneficiaries of funded programs, provided that funding does not pay salaries of government agency personnel and such assistance is not otherwise limited by U.S. law or TIP Office policy.
