Objectives: The Office on Trafficking in Persons (OTIP) currently funds the following three programs under the Domestic Victims of Human Trafficking (DVHT) Program. In FY 22, under the DVHT Program model, OTIP funded the Domestic Victims of Human Trafficking- Services and Outreach (DVHT-SO) Program and the Victims of Human Trafficking in Native Communities (VHT-NC) Demonstration Program. Under the DVHT-SO Program, the following activities are required: 1) Provision of comprehensive, culturally responsive, and linguistically appropriate case management and assistance to adult and minor domestic victims of human trafficking; 2) Outreach efforts to increase identification of domestic victims of sex and labor trafficking; and 3) Training to service providers and community partners. Under the VHT-NC Program, the following activities are required: 1) Provision of comprehensive, culturally responsive, and linguistically appropriate case management and victim assistance to adult and minor Native American victims of human trafficking; 2) Outreach efforts to increase identification of Native American victims of sex and labor trafficking; and 3) Training for service providers and community partners. Both the DVHT-SO Program and the VHT-NC Program are informed by a whole family approach that focuses equally and intentionally on services and opportunities for victims and their immediate family members living within their households. Both programs encourage the establishment of community partnerships, meaningful engagement of survivors, and the hiring of qualified professionals that reflect the communities being served in all project implementation strategies. Additionally, in FY 22, OTIP funded the Human Trafficking Youth Prevention Education (HTYPE) Demonstration Program. The primary purpose of the HTYPE Demonstration Program is to fund local educational agencies (LEA) to develop and implement programs to prevent human trafficking victimization through the provision of skills-based human trafficking training and education for school staff and students. The HTYPE Demonstration Program will fund LEAs to establish a cohesive strategy, with the support of a partnered nonprofit or nongovernmental organization (NGO), to build the capacity to provide all aspects of human trafficking prevention education to students and school staff. Beginning September 30, 2022, OTIP will fund three new cohorts of the DVHT-SO Program, VHT-NC Program, and HTYPE.
