DOJ – Enhancing Juvenile and Family Court Responses to Human Trafficking solicitation (2021)

Applications due: by March 30, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. ET

This program provides funding for organizations to develop or enhance programs to identify and provide services for youth in contact with juvenile and family courts who are victims of human trafficking crimes—actions that facilitate the commercial sexual exploitation or forced labor of youth—or who are at risk for trafficking due to past or current crime victimization. These programs should also seek to increase awareness and identification of sex and/or labor trafficking involving youth by educating court stakeholders and through community outreach efforts.
