Program Description

The Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) within the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) announces the availability of funds for its Rescue & Restore Victims of Human Trafficking Regional Program. Building on the work of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Rescue & Restore Victims of Human Trafficking Campaign, which began to establish local anti-trafficking coalitions, ORR seeks to continue and expand its efforts to increase identification of foreign victims of trafficking and promote local capacity to prevent human trafficking and protect victims of human trafficking. Grant recipients will serve as focal points for the identification of foreign victims of severe forms of trafficking in persons as defined by the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 and their referral for protection and assistance in their targeted geographic area. Foreign victim identification activities include direct outreach to victims, anti-trafficking training and outreach to local professionals and organizations or entities that may encounter victims of trafficking, active participation in a strong-multidisciplinary anti-trafficking coalition or task force, and strategic public awareness activities.
