$300K available to Arizona groups aiding human trafficking victims

The Arizona Attorney General’s Office is awarding $300,000 to organizations that provide support services and shelter to survivors of human trafficking.

During the 2019 legislative session, the AG’s Office worked with Rep. Shawnna Bolick, R-Phoenix, to secure funding for the anti-trafficking grants.

“Our office has prosecuted more than 250 cases connected to sex trafficking, child exploitation, or illegal operations related to the trafficking arena since I’ve taken office,” Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich stated in a release. “We’re going to continue to do everything we can to hold perpetrators accountable and serve victims. I’m proud our office can help provide additional resources to victims of these terrible crimes. Thank you Representative Bolick for being such a willing partner at the legislature to combat human trafficking.”

Mr. Brnovich’s office is seeking well-established, experienced bidders to deliver programs that will expand survivors’ access statewide to temporary or permanent shelter, and/or mental health, education, medical care, vocational training, substance abuse treatment, research, and other related essential support services to victims of human trafficking.

“Human trafficking is modern-day slavery,” Ms. Bolick stated. “I’m proud to team with Attorney General Brnovich to support victims of trafficking and help survivors recover and rebuild their lives through this new grant opportunity.”

Applications for the grant care due by March 7. One-time grants of up to $75,000 each will be awarded.
