Annotation: This brief by the U.S. Justice Department’s Office for Victims of Crime (OVC) presents aggregate data across three types of human trafficking grant programs, as reported in the Trafficking Information Management System (TIMS), a centralized repository for grant-required performance metrics and case-specific information related to OVC human trafficking grant programs for July 2015 through June 2016.
Abstract: Key grantee victim service activities were 1) providing comprehensive and specialized services to victims of human trafficking; 2) developing multidisciplinary task forces with federal, state, and local law enforcement, service providers, and community, as well as faith-based organizations to ensure that trafficking victims are identified, referred for appropriate services, and that their cases are investigated and prosecuted; 3) conducting training. Technical assistance, and public awareness to improve community capacity to respond to trafficking; and 4) conducting data collection and evaluation activities to determine whether the program is meeting stated goals and objectives. The two largest populations served across all three grant programs were U.S. citizen victims of sex trafficking and foreign national victims of labor trafficking. The 69 grantees reported serving 5,655 clients, with 3,195 being new clients. Of the clients served, 78 percent were adults and 22 percent were minors (under 18 years old). Other data cover the percentages of victims served by trafficking type, gender, and transgender.
