Trafficking in Persons: Grants and Cooperative Agreements
The Office of Federal Financial Management (OFFM) is establishing a government-wide award term for agencies to include in grants and cooperative agreements as part of their implementation of paragraph (g) of section 106 of the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000, as amended (22 U.S.C. 7104). In each award under which funding is provided to a private entity, the statute requires the awarding agency to include a condition authorizing termination of the award if the recipient or a subrecipient engages in certain activities related to trafficking in persons.
