Trump Awards More Than $35 Million To Aid Human Trafficking Survivors

Trump Awards More Than $35 Million To Aid Human Trafficking Survivors

Organizations that provide safe housing for survivors of human trafficking are to be given more than $35 million in Justice Department grantsthanks to the Trump administration.

The grants are to be announced at a White House event on Tuesday which will be attended by Attorney General William Barr, presidential adviser Ivanka Trump, other Trump administration officials as well as survivors of human trafficking and organizations that help them.

APnews reports: The $35 million in Housing Assistance Grants for Victims of Human Trafficking is being provided by the Office for Victims of Crime within the Justice Department’s Office of Justice Programs to provide housing and services to human trafficking survivors.

The grants will be shared by 73 organizations in 33 states to provide anywhere from six to 24 months of transitional or short-term housing assistance to survivors, including to pay rent, utilities or related expenses, such as a security deposit, the White House said.

The money can also be used to help victims find permanent housing, get a job and receive occupational training and counseling.

Ivanka Trump, a daughter of President Donald Trump, said the coronavirus pandemic has made safe and supportive housing for survivors more important than ever. She said many survivors had to live with their traffickers during stay-at-home orders around the country.

“The administration has heard these concerns and is responding by awarding leading nonprofit organizations the necessary funding to ensure that survivors have a stable place to live,” Ivanka Trump said in a statement.

Among organizations sharing the grants are Camillus House Inc. in Miami, Alternatives for Girls in Detroit and the Jordan Community Resource Center in Shaker Heights, Ohio.

President Trump has sought to elevate human trafficking since taking office. In January, he appointed a special adviser for the issue.
