Department of Justice: Improving Outcomes for Child and Youth Victims of Human Trafficking in United States

Deadline: 13 February 2017

The U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ), Office of Justice Programs (OJP), Office for Victims of Crime (OVC), is seeking applications from states or tribes to develop, enhance, and coordinate programs and activities geared toward improving outcomes for child and youth victims of sex and labor trafficking.

The purpose of this grant is to improve jurisdiction-wide coordination and multidisciplinary collaboration to address human trafficking involving children and youth. This program furthers the Department’s mission by enhancing the field’s response to victims of human trafficking.

The overarching goal of this program is to improve outcomes for children and youth who are victims of human trafficking by integrating human trafficking policy and programming at the state or tribal level and by enhancing a coordinated, multidisciplinary, and jurisdiction-wide approach to human trafficking. OJP strongly emphasizes the use of data and evidence in policymaking and program development in criminal justice, juvenile justice, and crime victim services. OJP is committed to:

  • Improving the quantity and quality of evidence OJP generates.
  • Integrating evidence into program, practice, and policy decisions within OJP and the field.
  • Improving the translation of evidence into practice.

Objectives

Successful applicants funded through this solicitation will engage in the following general activities in order to meet program goals and objectives:

  • Develop and implement a jurisdiction-wide strategy to combat the identified greatest challenge areas in child and youth sex and labor trafficking within the state or tribe. This strategy must be finalized and approved or enacted within the first year of the program start date. This strategy will also include developing a systematic method to screen for victimization across entities, developing protocols and procedures to ensure child and youth victims receive appropriate services, delivering staff training to implement and sustain the strategy jurisdiction-wide, and strengthening data collection across multiple systems of care.
  • Develop, enhance, and coordinate programs and activities geared toward improving outcomes for child and youth victims of sex and labor trafficking. States or tribes should establish a program coordinator role to oversee program implementation and ensure coordination of anti-trafficking efforts in the state or tribal jurisdiction.
  • Enhance or develop protocols or policies to ensure that child and youth victims of human trafficking are not penalized for crimes committed as a result of being trafficked, including crimes related to prostitution.

Funding Information

  • OVC expects to make up to two awards of up to $1.5 million each, with an estimated total award amount of up to $3 million.
  • OVC expects to make awards for a 36-month period of performance, to begin on October 1, 2017.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Eligible applicants are states (including U.S. territories and the District of Columbia) and federally recognized Indian tribal governments (as determined by the Secretary of the Interior).
  • OVC welcomes applications under which two or more entities would carry out the federal award; however, only one entity may be the applicant.
  • The applicant must be the entity that would have primary responsibility for carrying out the award, including administering the funding and managing the entire project.
  • Under this solicitation, only one application by any particular applicant entity will be considered.
  • OVC may elect to fund applications submitted under this fiscal year 2017 solicitation in future fiscal years, dependent on, among other considerations, the merit of the applications and on the availability of appropriations.
