New Funding Opportunity! "OVC FY 2016 Specialized Services for Victims of Human Trafficking&quo

Synopsis: "The primary goal of this program is to enhance the quality and quantity of specialized services available to assist victims of human trafficking, as defined by the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) of 2000, as amended. This solicitation will provide funding to victim service organizations with a demonstrated history of providing services for victims of human trafficking. Funding under this program will support the provision of specialized services for victims of human trafficking, including services for underserved or unserved populations such as men and boys, American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN), African Americans, Asian Americas, Latinos, Native Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders, and individuals who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or questioning (LGBTQ). For example, in a region where services are focused primarily on women and girls, a project under this program might focus on services for men and boys. Funding will also support efforts to increase the capacity of communities to respond to human trafficking victims through the development of interagency partnerships, professional training, and public awareness activities. The statutory authority for this program is22 U.S.C. § 7105(b)(2)."
