SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

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 2014, the current grantee, U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI), served more clients than it had originally planned for in its budget. Without the additional funding, significant cuts in services to clients would be made and the enrollment of new clients will be limited. With the supplemental funding, USCRI will be able to ensure that all of the clients' essential needs will be met.

Start Authority

Statutory Authority: Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 (TVPA), as amended, Section 107(b)(1)(B), 22 U.S.C. 7105(b)(1)(B), authorizes funding for benefits and services to foreign victims of severe forms of trafficking in persons in the United States, potential victims of trafficking seeking HHS Certification, and certain family members.
