FY 2019 Specialized Housing and Services for Victims of Human Trafficking
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), Office of Special Needs Assistance Programs (SNAPS), in conjunction with the U.S Department of Justice (DOJ), Office of Victim Crimes (OVC), will make a $13,500,000 available for grants to eligible organizations to implement and provide housing and trauma-informed, victim-centered services to victims of human trafficking. An additional $1,000,000 is available under this NOFA to fund a cooperative agreement with an eligible organization that has experience providing technical assistance to current federally-funded human trafficking programs to assist customers as defined in Section I.A.4.b of this NOFA to implement the program activities to be funded available under this NOFA.
Through the funds available under this NOFA, SNAPS and OVC are promoting collaboration between Continuums of Care (CoCs) funded by HUD and organizations funded by DOJ to address the housing and service needs of victims of human trafficking. This NOFA promotes trauma-informed, victim-centered services, including in tribal areas. Organizations awarded funds through this NOFA are expected to work with other organizations within the CoC’s geographic area to train service providers on how to identify victims of human trafficking and connect these victims to appropriate housing. SNAPS and OVC plan to identify best practices for addressing this population that may assist in framing future funding opportunities for victims of human trafficking.
