OMB No.: 0970–NEW. Description: The Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 (TVPA), as amended, authorizes the Secretary of Health and Human Services to establish a program to assist United States citizens and lawful permanent residents who are victims of severe forms of trafficking (22 U.S.C. 7105(f)). The Office on Trafficking in Persons (OTIP) awarded thirteen cooperative agreements to implement the Domestic Victims of Human Trafficking (DVHT) Program. The DVHT Program provides funding for comprehensive case management services to domestic victims of severe forms of trafficking to ensure the provision of services with an emphasis on long-term housing, substance abuse treatment, and the integration of survivor-led services. The intent of this program is to build, expand, and sustain organizational and community capacity to deliver traumainformed, strengths-based, and personcentered services for domestic victims of human trafficking through coordinated case management, a system of agency services, and community partnerships. The DVHT Program encourages innovative practices and collaboration efforts among community stakeholders to ensure long-term outcomes for domestic victims of severe forms of trafficking. OTIP proposes to collect information from DVHT grantees on a semi-annual and annual basis to help measure each grant project’s performance and the success of the program in assisting participants, to assist grantees to assess and improve their projects over the course of the project period, and to fulfill congressional reporting requests. The proposed information collection includes elements on participant demographics (e.g., age, sex, and country of origin), types of trafficking experienced (sex, labor, or both), types of enrollment, types of services requested and provided, barriers to service delivery, types of partnerships developed through the grant, and the types of training and technical assistance provided to subrecipient organizations or other partners. This information will help OTIP assess the project’s performance in assisting victims of trafficking and will better enable DVHT grantees to meet the program objectives and to monitor and evaluate the quality of case management services provided to victims. OTIP will also include aggregate information in reports to Congress to help inform strategies and policies to assist domestic victims of human trafficking.

Proposed Projects: Domestic Victims of Human Trafficking Program

    Title: Domestic Victims of Human Trafficking Program Data.
    OMB No.: 0970-NEW.
    Description: The Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 (TVPA), 
as amended, authorizes the Secretary of Health and Human Services to 
establish a program to assist United States citizens and lawful 
permanent residents who are victims of severe forms of trafficking (22 
U.S.C. 7105(f)). The Office on Trafficking in Persons (OTIP) awarded 
thirteen cooperative agreements to implement the Domestic Victims of 
Human Trafficking (DVHT) Program. The DVHT Program provides funding for 
comprehensive case management services to domestic victims of severe 
forms of trafficking to ensure the provision of services with an 
emphasis on long-term housing, substance abuse treatment, and the 
integration of survivor-led services.
    The intent of this program is to build, expand, and sustain 
organizational and community capacity to deliver trauma-informed, 
strengths-based, and person-centered services for domestic victims of 
human trafficking through coordinated case management, a system of 
agency services, and community partnerships. The DVHT Program 
encourages innovative practices and collaboration efforts among 
community stakeholders to ensure long-term outcomes for domestic 
victims of severe forms of trafficking.
    OTIP proposes to collect information from DVHT grantees on a semi-
annual and annual basis to help measure each grant project's 
performance and the success of the program in assisting participants, 
to assist grantees to assess and improve their projects over the course 
of the project period, and to fulfill congressional reporting requests. 
The proposed information collection includes elements on participant 
demographics (e.g., age, sex, and country of origin), types of 
trafficking experienced (sex, labor, or both), types of enrollment, 
types of services requested and provided, barriers to service delivery, 
types of partnerships developed through the grant, and the types of 
training and technical assistance provided to subrecipient 
organizations or other partners.
    This information will help OTIP assess the project's performance in 
assisting victims of trafficking and will better enable DVHT grantees 
to meet the program objectives and to monitor and evaluate the quality 
of case management services provided to victims. OTIP will also include 
aggregate information in reports to Congress to help inform strategies 
and policies to assist domestic victims of human trafficking.
    Respondents: Domestic Victims of Human Trafficking Program 
Grantees.
