REMINDER: Apply by Aug. 11 for Domestic Human Trafficking Demonstration Projects

The Family and Youth Services Bureau encourages community agencies to apply by August 11 for cooperative agreements to implement demonstration projects that will build and sustain coordinated services for domestic victims of severe forms of human trafficking in partnership with allied professionals in community-based organizations, such as runaway and homeless youth, domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking victim services programs. FYSB is particularly interested in applicants with experience serving victims of human trafficking in communities with evidence of high rates of human trafficking.

Awarded programs will support the provision of victim-centered services for United States citizens and lawful permanent resident victims of severe forms of trafficking regardless of age. Programs will implement the following activities: 1) Develop, expand, and strengthen victim service programs; 2) Facilitate communication and coordination between the providers of assistance to United States citizen and lawful permanent resident victims; 3) Provide a means to identify such providers; and 4) Provide a means to make referrals to programs for which United States citizen and lawful permanent resident victims are already eligible, including programs administered by the Department of Justice and elsewhere within the Department of Health and Human Services.
