Demonstration Grants for Domestic Victims of Human Trafficking


The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Administration on Children, Youth, and Families (ACYF), Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) will award approximately 4 cooperative agreements to implement projects that will build and sustain in partnership with allied professionals in community-based organizations such as runaway and homeless youth, domestic violence, sexual assault and human trafficking victim service programs. FYSB is particularly interested in applicants with experience in serving victims of human trafficking in communities with evidence of high rates of human trafficking. This project will support a comprehensive victim-centered services model, which includes case management and direct victim services for United States citizens and lawful permanent resident victims of severe forms of trafficking regardless of age. To do so, projects will implement the following activities: 1) Develop and strengthen victim service programs; 2) Facilitate communication and coordination between the providers of assistance to victims of human trafficking; 3) Provide a means to identify such providers; and 4) Provide a means to make referrals to programs for which victims are already eligible, including programs administered by the Department of Justice and elsewhere within the Department of Health and Human Services. Awards made under this announcement will have one 24-month project and budget period. Grantees must provide services through the entire 24-month project period such that approximately half of the funds are budgeted for the first year and half of the funds are budgeted for the second year.
