The Administration for Children and Families (ACF) will offer a new resource for family- and youth-serving agencies working with victims of human trafficking, according to a recent announcement by Acting Assistant Secretary Mark Greenberg.
The Office of Trafficking in Persons (OTIP) will manage several initiatives currently run by various ACF offices, including the domestic trafficking grants program administered by the Family and Youth Services Bureau. Current grantees of FYSB’s Demonstration Grants for Domestic Victims of Severe Forms of Human Trafficking will not experience any changes to the structure of their grant award or their assigned point of contact.
The National Clearinghouse on Families and Youth will continue to create and share resources that inform programs working with young victims of commercial sexual exploitation. Our recently revised Bought and Sold brochure includes a glossary of terms used in sex trafficking, an updated resource list, and new considerations for involving victims’ family members and the police.
