Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA nonprofit organizations, government agencies, and tribal organizations to develop strategies to reduce and prevent human trafficking. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to complete. The purpose of the program is to develop a multidisciplinary approach involving law enforcement, social service providers, prosecution personnel, and a range of other governmental and non-governmental partners that work together to provide a diverse set of appropriate services for trafficking victims.

This program expects a co-leadership model approach, with shared decision making by both the lead law enforcement and the lead victim service provider applicants.

  • Purpose Area 1: Development of Human Trafficking Task Forces: Task forces that have newly formed (formally operational less than 3 years) or have never received funding under the OJP Enhanced Collaborative Model Task Force Program are eligible to apply.

Purpose Area 1 funding will help new task forces with critical first steps related to starting up a multidisciplinary task force and establishing a strong foundation of task force co-leadership structure, clear roles and responsibilities, and internal processes and protocols. Successful applicants will dedicate the first 12–18 months of funding to formalize task force structure, develop operational procedures, access professional development and training opportunities, deliver training to key stakeholders, and conduct a community assessment to identify potential areas of the community where sex and labor trafficking may be occurring.

  • Purpose Area 2 – Expansion of Established ECM Human Trafficking Task Forces: Purpose Area 2 funding will help established ECM task forces that have been formally operational for a minimum of 3 years, can demonstrate clear task force co-leadership roles and structure, and have a history of successful identification of sex and labor trafficking victims and prosecution of traffickers. This funding will support expanded task force partnerships, refinement and implementation of existing and new protocols, meaningful survivor engagement, and efforts to implement a range of proactive approaches that are victim centered and trauma and survivor informed.

Objectives

  1. Develop, sustain, and strengthen co-leadership structure and coordination of ECM task force partnerships and activities using the Multidisciplinary Collaborative Model for Anti-Human Trafficking Task Forces: Development and Operations Roadmap as a guide.
  2. Developing a multidisciplinary anti-human trafficking task force is a process that requires significant time, attention, and intention. The Roadmap provides new and experienced ECM task forces with guidance across core elements of task force function and development.
  3. Develop, implement, and revise a set of protocols to guide overall task force operations, which include both service delivery and investigative and prosecutorial activities. 
  4. Identify and serve victims of all types of human trafficking. Implement victim-centered, trauma-informed, and collaborative approaches by developing and consistently implementing task force protocols and training.
  5. Involve all task force partners in actively planning and executing a range of proactive approaches that include victim-centered and trauma-informed investigations and prosecutions.
  6. Investigate, refer, and prosecute both sex and labor trafficking cases at the local, state, tribal, and federal levels. Applicants may view the Prosecution Case Review tool developed for multidisciplinary task forces.
  7. Assist victims of sex trafficking and labor trafficking in achieving increased safety, independence, self-sufficiency, and well-being by providing appropriate services.
  8. Collect data and conduct ongoing assessment activities to determine if the program is meeting its stated goals and objectives.

The following activities cannot be supported with grant funds:
- Holding Beds: Grantees may not “hold beds” in a housing facility by charging their cost to the grant and keeping them empty until a victim needs the bed when other victims need access to the beds, as this would be considered an unallowable contingency payment (see C.F.R. 200.433 (c)).
- Stipends/Incentives to Participate in Services: Neither cash nor non-cash stipends or incentives may be paid to victims to encourage their participation in services. Nominal cash or non-cash stipends (e.g., taxi or ride share vouchers, public transportation tickets/tokens; money to pay for child care or gift cards for meals that are necessary when participants receive services) are allowable.
- Primary Prevention Activities: Victim service provider budgets may not include funds for primary prevention activities, due to statutory limitations.
- Purchase/Lease Vehicles: Grantees may not purchase or lease vehicles, but vehicle rentals may be allowed with sufficient justification.
