The National Human Trafficking Victim Assistance Program (NHTVAP) provides funding for comprehensive case management services to victims of trafficking and certain family members on a per capita basis. The NHTVAP grantees help clients gain access to housing, employability services, mental health screening and therapy, medical care, and some legal services. During FY 2015, a grantee, U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants (USCRI), served more clients than it had planned for in its budget for the year. Without the additional funding, USCRI would have to make significant cuts in services to current clients and limit the enrollment of new clients. Also, without additional funding USCRI would not have sufficient programmatic support for the increase in client enrollments. With the supplemental funding, USCRI will be able to ensure that all of the clients' essential needs will be met.
