Housing and Services:
The U. S. Department of Justice (DOJ) and the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) have partnered under this NOFA to address human trafficking that occurs within communities.
The purpose of this program is to enhance the quality and quantity of safe
housing and specialized services available to assist victims of human trafficking, as defined by the Trafficking Victims Protection Act (TVPA) of 2000, as amended.
This includes specialized housing and services that are enhanced by a collaborative and coordinated community response that engages appropriate community resources.
Organizations that demonstrate the ability to provide safe housing options and client-focused services for victims of human trafficking that result in obtaining and remaining in permanent housing situations with the necessary supportive services to ensure participant success for housing retention, that includes obtaining the necessary income to promote self-sufficiency, are encouraged to apply for this funding.
This NOFA includes up to $1 million for a technical assistance provider that has experience in assisting HUD-funded and DOJ-funded organizations in the areas of housing and services specifically for victims of human trafficking.
