Description: OVC and BJA are seeking applications to develop or support multidisciplinary task forces (TFs) to combat human trafficking. This program has two purpose areas (PAs). PA 1: help TFs with critical first steps related to starting up a multidisciplinary TF. PA 2: allows TFs to compete for funding to expand their TF operations and partnerships, implement TF sustainability plans, and assist OJP in building the capacity of other TFs in the field. Each TF selected for funding will receive two separate grants: one from OVC to a victim service partner, and one from the Bureau of Justice Assistance to a state, local, or tribal law enforcement agency partner. OVC and BJA anticipate making 18 awards under PA 1 (9 TFs) of up to $1.5 million per TF and up to 10 awards under PA 2 (5 TFs) of up to $1.5 million per TF. OVC and BJA will conduct a pre-application webinar on Monday, March 30, 2020, from 1:00 to 2:00 p.m. e.t. Register at www.ovc.gov/grants/webinars.html. Apply by May 18, 2020.
