Grant Description
Grant to a Pennsylvania nonprofit organization, state or local government agency, or institution of higher education to address human trafficking. Applicants must complete the required registrations prior to applying. Funding is intended to manage and coordinate training, information, and resources related to combating and preventing human trafficking.

Under this solicitation, the term “human trafficking” encompasses both sex trafficking and labor trafficking. The goal of this solicitation is to identify one organization to act as the Commonwealth’s Human Trafficking Resource for the coordination of information, training, and resources. The entity will work with an advisory group to:

  • Identify and assess existing training and resources relevant to the crime of human trafficking, organize these materials in a meaningful way, and then place them on a publicly available website for users throughout Pennsylvania;
  • Develop and post on the website new training and resources relevant to the crime of human trafficking, as needed to meet emerging needs identified by the field;
  • Develop training on Human Trafficking for first responders and allied stakeholders; and
  • Develop technical assistance materials on Human Trafficking for victim advocates, legal providers, and immigration services.

For information about program goals, objectives, and deliverables, see Page 7 of the Guidelines in Attached Files, below.
