FY 2016 Project Beacon Training and Technical Assistance Project

ovc-colorFY 2016 Project Beacon Training and Technical Assistance Project – The purpose of this programs is to provide training and technical assistance to grant award recipients under the Office for Victims of Crime’s (OVC) FY 2016 Project Beacon: Increasing Services for Urban American Indian and Alaska Native Victims of Sex Trafficking Program (Project Beacon). American Indian and Alaska Native (AI/AN) victims of sex trafficking in urban communities face an array of personal and systemic challenges to accessing the services essential to aid them in fleeing a life of violence and recovering from their victimization. Organizations whose primary mission is to meet the health, safety, and general welfare needs of urban AI/ANs may lack the knowledge and experience necessary to meet the needs of this vulnerable population. OVC seeks to increase the capacity of these organizations to meet the needs of urban AI/AN victims of sex trafficking through the provision of training and technical assistance. Applications Due: June 21, 2016.
