The Office for Victims of Crime supports services for victims of human trafficking. This grant program will provide funding to victim service organizations with a demonstrated history of providing comprehensive services for victims of human trafficking. Funding will also support efforts to increase the capacity of communities to respond to human trafficking victims through the development of interagency partnerships, professional training, and public awareness activities. 

The Comprehensive Service Model (the Model) includes a wide variety of services that victims of human trafficking often need in order to address their needs for safety, security, and healing. No one agency is expected to provide all of the services in-house that are outlined within the Comprehensive Service Model; however, applicants are expected to demonstrate that there is a coordinated, community-wide approach in place to ensure that each of the services outlined within the Model is available to trafficking victims identified within their community, either in-house or through project partners and other community-based programs.

The delivery of a coordinated, community-wide response to victims will include, but is not limited to, local, state, tribal, and federal law enforcement and prosecutors; legal assistance providers; child welfare and child protection service systems; domestic violence, youth, and homeless shelter systems and transitional housing programs; medical and mental health services and systems; immigrant and refugee service providers; child and adult educational systems; job training programs; substance abuse treatment agencies; drop-in centers for youth and adults; detention facilities; faith-based service providers; interpretation and translation providers; and other partners providing critical services. The Model supports the development of individualized service plans that are tailored to meet victims’ identified needs. Using this Model, in coordination with a victim-centered approach, will ensure that victims of human trafficking have the opportunity to make informed decisions about the support they need to work through the impact of the crime. The Model supports the process of informing victims about their options and helping them work with local, state, tribal, and federal law enforcement in the prosecution of the trafficker.

Grant Amount: Grants range from $550,000 to $925,000.

Eligibility: Eligible applicants include states, territories, units of local government, federally recognized Indian tribal governments (as determined by the Secretary of the Interior), and nonprofit (defined as an organization that is described in section 501(c)(3) of Title 26 and is exempt from taxation under 501 (a) of such title) and nongovernmental organizations (including tribal nonprofits).

Due Date: June 25, 2018

The Impact Fund provides grants to nonprofit legal firms, private attorneys, and/or small law firms working to advance social justice in the areas of civil and human rights, environmental justice, and poverty law.

Through the fund's litigation program, grants will be awarded in support of public interest litigation that has the potential to benefit a large number of people, lead to significant law reform, and raise public consciousness of social justice issues. Preference will be given to civil rights, human rights, anti-poverty, and environmental justice cases that affect a marginalized group. Most grants will be awarded for class actions, but the fund also will support multi-plaintiff and environmental justice cases focused on significantly affecting a larger system. Impact Fund grants may be used for out -of- pocket litigation expenses such as expert fees and discovery costs, but not for attorney's fees, staff, or other overhead.

Grants will be awarded to private attorneys, small legal firms, and nonprofit legal entities that do not have adequate access to funding sources. Specifically, grants are intended to support cases that could not be effectively prosecuted and/or in which financial hardship would occur to the applicant if supplementary funding were not available.

Grant Amount: Grants of up to $25,000 are available.

Eligibility: Applicants must be a lawyer, a law firm, or a nonprofit legal organization.

Due Date: July 10, 2018
