OMB No.: 0970–NEW. Description: The Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 (TVPA), as amended, authorizes the Secretary of Health and Human Services (Secretary) to expand benefits and services to victims of severe forms of trafficking in persons in the United States, without regard to the immigration status of such victims. Such benefits and services may include services to assist potential VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:55 Nov 10, 2014 Jkt 235001 500 275 victims of trafficking in achieving certification (Section 107(b)(1)(B) of the TVPA, 22 U.S.C. § 7105(b)(1)(B)). It also authorizes the President, acting through the Secretary and the heads of other Federal departments, to establish and carry out programs to increase public awareness, particularly among potential victims of trafficking, of the dangers of trafficking and the protections that are available for victims of trafficking (Section 106(b) of the TVPA, 22 U.S.C. § 7104(b)). The Secretary delegated authority to carry out these responsibilities to the Assistant Secretary for Children and Families who further delegated the authority to the Director of the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR). The intent of the Rescue & Restore Victims of Human Trafficking campaign, launched in 2004, is to increase the identification of trafficking victims in the United States and to help those victims receive the benefits and services they need to restore their lives. The purpose of the Rescue & Restore Victims of Trafficking Regional Program (Rescue & Restore Program) is to increase the identification and protection of foreign victims of human trafficking in the United States and to promote local capacity to prevent human trafficking and protect human trafficking victims. The Rescue & Restore Program also seeks to remove barriers to prevention and protection specific to foreign human trafficking victims who live in the United States. The Rescue & Restore Program has the following objectives: (1) Identification and Referral of Foreign Victims of Human Trafficking: To identify foreign victims of trafficking and refer them to service delivery systems. (2) Training and Technical Assistance: To build local capacity by providing training and technical assistance on human trafficking to local organizations not involved in a local coalition. (3) Coalition Building: To lead or actively participate in a community-led effort to bring together and leverage local resources to address human trafficking in a region, such as a Rescue & Restore Coalition or law enforcement task force (‘‘coalition’’).

To measure each grant project’s performance progress and the success of the program, and to assist grantees to assess and improve their projects over the course of the project period, ACF proposes to require grantees to input numbers for each numeric indicator and other information for qualitative indicators into a spreadsheet during the 36-month project period. ACF proposes to collect data for the following indicators: Identification and Referral of Foreign Victims of Human Trafficking • The number of outreach events conducted by the grantee; • The number of people reached at outreach events; • The number of potential male and female, adult and minor foreign human trafficking victims identified through Rescue & Restore project efforts; • The number of potential male and female, adult and minor foreign human trafficking victims referred by the grantee to service providers; and • The number of male and female, adult and minor foreign human trafficking victims who receive Certification, Eligibility, and/or Interim Assistance Letters as a result of the grantee’s efforts. Training and Technical Assistance • The number of persons in social service agencies, law enforcement agencies, and other relevant professional, community-based, and faith-based organizations who were trained by the grantee; • The number of persons whose knowledge of human trafficking measurably increased as a result of grantee training as evidenced by the use of established practices in assessing learning; and • The number of social service, law enforcement, health, legal, education, or other professionals provided technical assistance on identifying human trafficking victims and referring them for services or to law enforcement.

    Description: Content changes are being proposed for the OPR and OWP

monitor the performance of grantees and better gauge grantee progress.

or technical assistance to successfully implement their projects. The 
following are proposed changes within specific sections of the OPR 
form:
    Objective Work Plan Update Section: ANA has added fields for 1st 
through 4th Quarter (Q1,Q2,Q3,Q4) to report the results for activities 
within each Project Objective. The grantee may continue to add to this 
form each quarter (rather than to a new form), reflecting cumulative 
results throughout the project period instead of a single quarter.
