Goal: A project goal is the highest level outcome to be advanced and/or achieved through the project. The goal specifies the change the project will bring or contribute to bringing about. The goal statement should be clear: it should state specific accomplishments, define ambiguous terms, and define the target population.
Objective: Project objectives are the most ambitious results that the project will materially affect and be held accountable to demonstrate impact within the period of performance. The objectives are the steps that will guide the project in the attainment of the goal. Be certain each objective is clear and concise; measurable; feasible considering program funding, time, human capital, and other resources; is relevant to the project goal; and can be achieved within the timeframe of the project.
This announcement is specifically focused on addressing short-term targeted needs related to COVID-19 and human trafficking. The TIP Office recognizes the pressures governments and civil society organizations are under to combat human trafficking and manage the impacts of COVID-19. While there will be lasting effects from the impacts of COVID-19 globally including increased vulnerability to trafficking, this announcement is targeted specifically to address short-term targeted needs related to COVID19 and human trafficking.
Most importantly, applications should demonstrate a clear urgent need related to the impacts of COVID-19 and human trafficking beyond the general increased vulnerability of populations with specific targeted activities. Applicants should consider proposing projects with a geographic or demographic focus within the technical approach.
Award Ceiling: $1,000,000
Award Floor: $100,000
Below are also broader examples of general activities that could be included in a technical approach. If these activities are incorporated into an application, the focusshould be specific and targeted in geographic areas or 8 demographic populations most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Examples of activities may include, but are not limited to:
Activities that support victim identification and screening efforts by:
Assisting governments to better screen and identify victims of trafficking among specific communities made more vulnerable as a result of COVID-19 and stay-at-home orders;
Working closely with source and destination governments to increase human trafficking screening procedures in the workplace, particularly for migrant workers who face increased vulnerability to exploitation by traffickers as the economy reopens;
Facilitating the safe self-identification of victims;
Activities that support collaborative cross-border case management with law enforcement by:
Assisting governments with the repatriation of identified survivors of trafficking who may not have the capacity due to COVID-19;
Activities that provide access to services and resources for victims and survivors that may have decreased as a result of COVID-19 and government responses;
Activities that respond to emerging evidence on increased types of trafficking as a result of COVID-19 by:
Addressing the surge in traffickers using the internet to abuse of their victims by working with governments to identify and crack down on these types of cybercrimes.
Organizations eligible to apply include U.S.-based and foreign non-profits, non-governmental organizations (including faith-based organizations), for-profit organizations, institutions of higher education, and public international organizations (PIOs).
For-profit organizations are not permitted to generate profits from grant-funded activities. U.S. government agencies may respond to this opportunity with applications for proposed projects that would be funded through an Interagency Acquisition Agreement. While foreign governments are not eligible to apply, governments may be beneficiaries of projects provided that funding does not pay salaries of government agency personnel and that such assistance is not restricted by U.S. law or policy.
Organizations currently receiving funds from the TIP Office may apply for additional funding under the present funding opportunity.
The eligibility requirements for applying to this funding opportunity do not restrict applicants from receiving other sources of funding from the United States government, including funding from other bureaus within the Department of State. However, related U.S. government funding must be identified in the application.
Applicants should demonstrate experience administering 11 successful projects—preferably in human trafficking or related areas and in the identified country or sub-region.
