*** THIS FUNDING OPPORTUNITY ANNOUNCEMENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED FOR FY 2014.***
The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) announces that competing applications will be accepted for cooperative agreements to administer the Trafficking Victim Assistance Program (TVAP).
The central purpose of these cooperative agreements is to efficiently fund comprehensive case management services on a per capita basis to foreign victims and potential victims of a severe form of trafficking in persons seeking HHS certification in any location within the United States. Persons qualified for services under this grant (qualified persons) means victims of a severe form of trafficking in persons who have received certification from ORR or, in the case of child victims, letters of eligibility from ORR; potential victims of a severe form of trafficking who are seeking assistance to achieve HHS certification; and minor dependent children of victims of severe forms of trafficking in persons or potential victims of trafficking.
The Anti-Trafficking in Persons Division within ORR intends to accomplish this purpose by awarding up to three cooperative agreements to organizations that will individually or collectively ensure national coverage. The awarded organization must provide case management and referrals to qualified persons either directly through its own organization or through partnering with other organizations through contracts.
