Grants to USA and territories Indian tribes, nonprofit organizations, and local agencies for programs that provide support services and housing to victims of human trafficking. Applicants must complete the required registrations prior to applying. Funding is intended to provide safe, stable housing and appropriate services to victims of human trafficking.

Rapid Rehousing is the primary focus of this solicitation. Rapid Rehousing is a type of housing assistance in which supportive services and transitional housing are provided to assist victims to move as quickly as possible into permanent housing and achieve stability.

For some victims, the use of emergency shelter or crisis housing may be the best approach for establishing long-term sustainable housing. If emergency shelter or crisis housing is the preferred housing choice to meet the immediate housing needs of victims, the applicant must work with victims to identify longer-term housing as soon as it is safe and feasible for the victim, while providing necessary case management and culturally responsive support services.

Under this program, applicants may propose services/activities related to the following:

  • Emergency shelter, meaning a type of shelter or non-permanent housing in which a victim of human trafficking may be placed for less than 6 months, depending on the immediate need and preference of the victim. Crisis housing can be provided on an emergency, temporary basis, which may include congregate shelter and/or hotel/motel placements as a bridge to imminent shelter openings or other housing.
  • Transitional housing assistance, meaning temporary housing offered for at least 6 months and no more than 24 months that helps victims transition into permanent housing. Transitional housing is not an extended shelter stay.
  • Short-term housing assistance, meaning rental assistance and/or other financial assistance (e.g., utility assistance, relocation costs) offered for at least 6 months and no more than 24 months that helps victims transition into permanent housing. Short-term housing assistance is not emergency shelter, rental assistance offered for less than 6 months, or financial assistance for victims not provided with housing.

In addition to providing housing, projects must also include culturally responsive and meaningfully accessible support services designed to enable victims of human trafficking and any dependents to—

  1. Locate and secure permanent housing;
  2. Secure employment, including obtaining employment counseling, occupational training, job retention counseling, meaningful access to language assistance services, and counseling concerning entry or re-entry into the workforce; and integrate into a community by providing victims and dependents with services such as transportation, counseling, childcare services, meaningful access to language assistance services, case management, and other assistance. Participation in the support services shall be voluntary.
