This announcement is modified.
HHS made changes regarding eligibility for derivatives and a pre-certified victim's requirement to meet with a law enforcement official or an attorney.
Please see changes in the Executive Summary and Section I., Purpose and Scope, Program Requirements,
Program Evaluation Plan, Additional Information, and Post-Award Requirements.
The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) within the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Administration for Children and Families (ACF) announces that competing applications will be accepted for cooperative agreements to administer the Trafficking Victim Assistance Program (TVAP).
The central purpose of these cooperative agreements is to efficiently fund comprehensive case management services on a per capita basis to foreign victims and potential victims of a severe form of trafficking in persons seeking HHS certification in any location within the United States.
Each awarded organization must provide case management and referrals to qualified persons either directly through its own organization or through partnering with other organizations through contracts.
Persons qualified for services under this grant (qualified persons) means victims of a severe form of trafficking in persons who have received certification from ORR or, in the case of child victims, letters of eligibility from ORR; potential victims of a severe form of trafficking who are seeking assistance to achieve HHS certification; and minor dependent children of victims of severe forms of trafficking in persons or potential victims of trafficking.
