The National Human Trafficking Victim Assistance Program (NHTVAP) provides funding for comprehensive case management services on a per capita basis. The NHTVAP grantees help victims gain access to housing, employability services, mental health screening and therapy, medical care, and some legal services, enabling them to live free of violence and exploitation. During FY 2013, the NHTVAP grantees have served more clients than they planned for in their budgets. Without additional funding, they will have to make significant cuts in services to clients and that enrollment of new clients will be limited. With supplemental funding, the grantees will be able to ensure that all of the clients' essential needs will be met.
