Grants and Funding
Following is information about funding programs and resources from OJP and OJP bureaus and offices:
Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA)
As part of its efforts to combat human trafficking, BJA has established the Anti-Human Trafficking Task Force Initiative. BJA's efforts related to this matter are two-pronged: 1) to develop training for law enforcement and communities to identify trafficking in persons and rescue victims by working with federal law enforcement and victims service providers; and 2) to support and fund task forces based on a sound strategy of collaboration among state and local enforcement, trafficking victim services providers, federal law enforcement, and U.S. Attorneys Offices.
Office for Victims of Crime (OVC)
OVC funding helps victim service providers meet the challenge of addressing the complex and acute service needs of trafficking victims through the provision of comprehensive services, supplemental/specialized services, and technical assistance. Information about OVC efforts and a list of funded programs is available on the OVC-Funded Grantee Programs To Help Victims of Trafficking page.
OJP Funding Resource Center
The OJP Funding Resources page provides links to available funding from OJP bureaus and offices and also supplies access to helpful information about the OJP funding process. Also available is Grants 101, a step-by-step tutorial on the OJP grant process. It is designed to help prospective grantees prepare more effective applications and to provide them with an overview of the OJP grant process.
Also see the federal Grants.gov website which serves as a central storehouse for information on over 1,000 grant programs and provides access to approximately $500 billion in annual awards.
