Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2010, $362,330)

This award is made under a program entitled "FY 2010 Enhanced Collaborative Model to Combat Human Trafficking". The funds for this cooperative agreement were authorized by the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008. This cooperative agreement reflects the continuing commitment of the Department of Justice to enhance the law enforcement and social service fields' response to victims of human trafficking.

The purpose of this award is to support a comprehensive approach to combating human trafficking in all forms; sex trafficking and labor trafficking of foreign nationals and U.S. citizens (male and female, adults and minors). The recipient will work in partnership with the BJA grantee funded under this solicitation to 1) conduct proactive, victim-centered trafficking investigations; 2) offer a comprehensive array of restorative services to meet each victim's identified needs; 3) support the prosecution of trafficking crimes on state and federal levels; and, 4) enhance community capacity to identify trafficking crimes and provide culturally appropriate, trauma-informed services to all trafficking victims identified within the geographic region.
