DOJ – Preventing Trafficking of Girls (2021)

Applications due: by March 29, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. ET

The goal of this program is to prevent/reduce victimization of girls who are vulnerable to sex trafficking.

The objectives of this program include the following:

Replicate and scale-up prevention and early intervention programs for girls who are at risk of, or are victims of, sex trafficking that have undergone rigorous evaluation and/or have a track record of success. Program models should include a plan to develop services and interventions for high-risk girls, including those with a history of trauma caused by physical and sexual abuse, commercial sexual exploitation, and domestic minor sex trafficking.

Implement or enhance efforts to identify and provide services to girls who are at risk of, or are victims of, sexual exploitation or sex trafficking. This may include street outreach efforts, partnerships with organizations that serve the youth community, and/or collaboration with key stakeholders in the community.

Participate in an annual peer-to-peer learning (cluster meeting) opportunity hosted by the OVC-funded training and technical assistance provider.
