OVC seeks applications under Category 1 for state or tribal jurisdictions to identify the state or tribe’s greatest barriers to identifying and assisting child and youth victims of sex and labor trafficking and/or to investigating and prosecuting these cases, and to develop a statewide or tribal jurisdiction-wide strategy to address these challenges.

Category 2: Training and Technical Assistance (TTA)
OVC seeks applications under Category 2 to provide TTA to states and tribes (both those that are funded under the OVC Improving Outcomes program and those that are not) in strengthening their cross-systems coordinated responses for child and youth victims of trafficking.
