Grant Description
Cooperative agreement to a USA nonprofit or for-profit organization or IHE to provide training to state and local agencies to help curtail human trafficking. Applicants are advised that required registrations must be completed prior to applying. Funding is intended to provide technical assistance and support to task forces already funded under the Enhanced Collaborative Model (ECM).

OVC seeks to expand the set of TTA services and support available to ECM-funded task forces. This expansion will also benefit the broader anti-trafficking field by producing and sharing a variety of resources developed through this program. The OVC FY23 ECM TTA program will fund one training and technical assistance provider to further develop the ECM Program—both the overall ECM model and a comprehensive TTA program—to support and deliver TTA to state, local, and Tribal ECM task forces, and relevant partners. The TTA provider will assist all active OVC-funded ECM task forces with achieving the program’s objectives and deliverables.

The ECM TTA program will support OVC ECM task force partners develop and sustain a multidisciplinary approach that increases their capacity to identify and support victims, seek justice on their behalf, and hold traffickers accountable. The program will establish a TTA infrastructure that clearly identifies, defines, and supports the core elements of a high functioning ECM task force model, through all stages of task force development, and assist sites to plan, develop, and implement a set of sustainable, multifaceted strategies including the following:

  • Identifying victims of all forms and all ages of human trafficking.
  • Connecting victims to developmentally appropriate, culturally responsive, victim-centered and trauma-informed services.
  • Assisting task forces in creating and implementing an expanded set of investigative and prosecutorial approaches that are rooted in victim-centered and trauma- and survivor-informed practices.
