Domestic Victims of Human Trafficking Services and Outreach (DVHT-SO) Program

The Office on Trafficking in Persons (OTIP) within the Administration for Children and Families is announcing funds for the Domestic Victims of Human Trafficking Services and Outreach (DVHT-SO) Program.

The goal of the DVHT-SO Program is to fund organizations that will build, expand, and sustain


organizational and local capacity to deliver services to domestic victims of severe forms of human trafficking as defined by the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 through the provision of direct services, assistance, and referrals.

Under the DVHT-SO Program, the following activities are required:
1) provision of comprehensive case management to domestic victims of human trafficking; 2) outreach efforts to increase identification of victims of sex and labor trafficking; and 3) training to service providers and community partners.

The DVHT-SO Program is informed by a whole-family approach that focuses equally and intentionally on services and opportunities for victims and their immediate family members living within their households.

OTIP is encouraging the establishment of community partnerships, meaningful engagement of survivors, and the hiring of qualified professionals that reflect the communities being served in all project implementation strategies under the DVHT- SO Program.

Under DVHT-SO there is a 12-month project implementation period for the funding recipient to facilitate optional partnerships, on-board new staff, develop victim service protocol, and develop a sustainability plan.

Under the DVHT-SO Program, there is a statutorily mandated 25 percent match (cash or in-kind) requirement.
