April 2nd 2020


Department of Justice      U.S. Attorney's Office     Eastern District of Pennsylvania

PHILADEPHIA, PA - United States Attorney William M. McSwain announced that more than $36 million in Department of Justice grants are available to help communities combat human trafficking and serve adults and children who are victimized in trafficking operations.

"Human trafficking is horrific crime - one that strips victims of their dignity and often leaves them traumatized, with lasting physical and emotional scars," said U.S. Attorney McSwain. "Human traffickers pose a serious threat to public safety, which is why the Department of Justice and my Office have made prosecution of these crimes a top priority. This is both a national and local problem, and these grants will help fund programs designed to assist those directly and indirectly affected by this serious issue."

"Human traffickers pose a dire threat to public safety and countering this threat remains one of the Administration's top domestic priorities," said Katharine T. Sullivan, Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General for the Office of Justice Programs. "The Department of Justice is front and center in the fight against this insidious crime. OJP is making historic amounts of grant funding available to ensure that our communities have access to innovative and diverse solutions."

The funding is available through the Office of Justice Programs (OJP), the federal government's leading source of public safety funding and crime victim assistance in state, local, and tribal jurisdictions. OJP's programs support a wide array of activities and services, including programs that support human trafficking task forces and services for human trafficking survivors.

The following funding opportunities are currently available, with several more coming in the near future:

  • Missing and Exploited Children Training and Technical Assistance Program

https://ojjdp.ojp.gov/funding/opportunities/ojjdp-2020-17351

Through this program, OJP seeks to improve and expand the development and implementation of training and technical assistance on effective responses to missing and exploited children's issues for multidisciplinary teams of prosecutors, state and local law enforcement, child protection personnel, medical providers, and other child-serving professionals. Additionally, this program will provide support for the implementation of all National Missing Children's Day activities.  The following entities are eligible to apply for and receive funds pursuant to this grant: nonprofit and for-profit organizations and institutes of higher education.

Through this solicitation, the National Institute of Justice (NIJ) - a research, development, and evaluation arm of the Department of Justice - continues to build upon its efforts to better understand, prevent, and respond to trafficking in persons in the United States. Applicants should propose research projects that, first and foremost, have clear implications for criminal justice policy and practice in the United States. NIJ is also particularly interested in research projects addressing both sex and labor trafficking. The following entities are eligible to apply for and receive funds pursuant to this grant: states (including territories); units of local government; federally recognized Indian tribal governments that perform law enforcement functions; nonprofit and for-profit organizations; and institutes of higher education.

Priority support will be given to current grantees of the Department of Justice's Office for Victims of Crime (OVC). The selected applicant must be able to assist service providers on a national scale in leveraging existing federal, state, local, and private housing programs and initiatives that trafficking survivors may qualify for, and should demonstrate partnerships with relevant housing stakeholders. The following entities are eligible to apply for and receive funds pursuant to this grant: nonprofit, nongovernmental victims' service organizations with the capacity to serve human trafficking victims.

OVC is seeking applications for 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 overall goal of the program is to improve responses for child and youth victims of trafficking with a focus on coordination at the statewide or tribal jurisdiction level to create effective change across systems.  The following entities are eligible to apply for and receive funding pursuant to this grant: states (including territories) and federally recognized Indian tribal governments.
