DOJ Office of Victims of Crime – Enhanced Collaborative Model to Combat Human Trafficking

Description:       This FY 2013 program will fund Enhanced Collaborative Model Task Force sites that take a comprehensive approach to combating all forms of trafficking—sex trafficking and labor trafficking of foreign nationals and U.S. citizens (male and female, adults and minors). Cooperative agreements of up to $500,000 are expected to be awarded. At each selected site, two awards will be made. Awards will be made by BJA to support law enforcement agencies to coordinate the goals, objectives, and activities of the entire task force in close collaboration with the local U.S. Attorney’s Office (USAO) and victim service provider partner. Awards will be made by OVC to support a victim service organization to coordinate the provision of a comprehensive array of culturally and linguistically appropriate services to all trafficking victims identified within the geographic area impacted by the task force.
