Federal Funding Announcements – February 2017

Federal Funding Announcements – February 2017

Federal funding is increasingly competitive and funding for youth & families services is no exception. With the unprecedented fiscal landscape, organizations depend on MANY to identify and share potential funding opportunities, as well as effectively prepare them to be competitive through our webinars and proposal review services.  

Last year, we helped organizations secure more than $47 million in federal funding to support local services.  In fact, 82% of organizations who utilized our personal proposal review service were successfully funded in 2016  – the cost effective combination of the webinars and the proposal review service will increase your organization’s ability and effectiveness to respond and secure federal grants.

Here are a few of the recent federal funding announcements focused on serving youth at highest risk for victimization and/or delinquency:

Enhanced Collaborative Model to Combat Human Trafficking

Due Date: 02/27/2017

The purpose of the Enhanced Collaborative Model To Combat Human Trafficking program is to
support the development and enhancement of multidisciplinary human trafficking task forces
that implement collaborative approaches to combating all forms of human trafficking within the
United States—sex trafficking and labor trafficking—of foreign nationals and U.S. citizens (of all
sexes and ages). The U.S. Department of Justice, Office of Justice Programs, Office for Victims
of Crime (OVC) and Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA) intend for funding through this fiscal
year (FY) 2017 program to enhance the effectiveness of multidisciplinary task forces that are
implementing victim-centered and coordinated approaches to identify victims of all types of
human trafficking, address the individualized needs of victims through quality services, and
investigate and prosecute sex and labor trafficking cases at the local, state, tribal, and federal
Levels.

Through this solicitation, OVC and BJA will make awards to support law enforcement and victim
service provider efforts within human trafficking task forces. Within each geographic region
covered by a task force, two separate awards will be made—one to a lead law enforcement
agency and one to a lead victim service provider; however, the total amount of funding that will
be awarded for each task force will not exceed $1.5 million. The law enforcement and victim
service provider applicants must submit separate but coordinated proposals that outline how
this funding will be used over a 3-year project period to combat human trafficking within the
specific geographic area, in coordination with other key members of the task force, including the
U.S. Attorney’s Office (USAO); local prosecutor’s office; local, state, and federal law
enforcement; and community- and system-based service providers.

Specialized Services for Victims of Human Trafficking

Due Date: 03/09/2017

The purpose of this program is to enhance the quality and quantity of specialized services
available to assist victims of human trafficking, as defined by the Trafficking Victims Protection
Act (TVPA) of 2000, as amended. This solicitation will provide funding to victim service
organizations with a demonstrated history of providing services for victims of human trafficking.
There are enduring service needs where a greater focus is needed. This solicitation focuses on
a number of these identified services in order to fill significant gaps in services to assist all
victims of severe forms of trafficking, including services for underserved or unserved
populations such as men and boys, American Indians and Alaska Natives (AI/AN), African
Americans, Asian Americans, Latinos, Native Hawaiians, Pacific Islanders, and individuals
who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or questioning (LGBTQ). Funding
will also support efforts to increase the capacity of communities to respond to human
trafficking victims through the development of interagency partnerships, professional training,
and public awareness activities.
