Grants to USA and territories nonprofit and for-profit organizations, institutions of higher education, government agencies, and Tribal entities to improve services for crime victims in urban areas. Applicants are advised that required registrations must be completed prior to applying. Funding is intended to strengthen the capacity of urban Indian centers to address the needs of human trafficking victims by providing a range of services either in-house or through referrals to a network of collaborative partners. The goal of the grant program is to increase the quantity and quality of victim-centered services available to assist American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) victims of human trafficking in urban areas.

OVC will make awards under two program purpose areas.

Purpose Area 1: Direct Services: Eligible applicants may apply to this purpose area to request funding to:

  • Develop or enhance their organizational capacity to provide services to urban AI/AN victims of human trafficking,
  • Develop and sustain collaborative partnerships,
  • Conduct community outreach and awareness activities, and
  • Provide training to other stakeholders on how to meet the needs of urban AI/AN victims of human trafficking.

Purpose Area 2: Training and Technical Assistance: Eligible applicants may request funding to provide capacity-building training and technical assistance to successful Purpose Area 1 grantees.

The Comprehensive Services Model includes four components: (1) collaborative partnerships, (2) a victim-centered approach to service delivery, (3) intensive case management services, and (4) specific required categories of victim services. For additional information, see:

Under this program, Purpose Area 1 applicants must allocate a minimum of 2 percent and no more than 5 percent of the total award amount requested to deliver training for collaborative partners and other professionals, conduct public awareness activities, and provide project staff with professional development opportunities.
