benefits and services may include services to assist potential victims 
of trafficking (Section 107(b)(1)(B) of the TVPA, 22 U.S.C. 
7105(b)(1)(B)). The Office on Trafficking in Persons (OTIP) awards 
cooperative agreements to organizations to provide case management 
services to foreign national victims of human trafficking pursuing HHS 
Certification and their qualified family members. The awarded 
organizations must provide comprehensive case management and referrals 
to qualified persons, either directly through its own organization or 
by partnering with other organizations through subcontracts or both.
    Persons qualified for services under this grant are victims of a 
severe form of trafficking in persons who have received HHS 
Certification or Eligibility, potential victims of a severe form of 
trafficking who are actively seeking to achieve HHS Certification or 
Eligibility, family members with derivative T visas, and minor 
dependent children of foreign victims of severe forms of trafficking in

    To help measure each grant project's performance and the success of 
the program in assisting the target population, to assist grantees to

of service provided, the amount of money expended on each type of 
client enrollment, types of partnerships developed through the grant, 
and the types of training and technical assistance provided to 
subrecipient organizations or other partners.
