Description

The purpose of the new Countering Trafficking in Persons and Support to Vulnerable Populations (CTIP/V) activity is to (1) prevent trafficking in persons (TIP) through a strengthened comprehensive, government-led counter-trafficking response and (2) to ensure nationwide access to trauma-informed and survivor-centered recovery and reintegration services for victims of trafficking, exploitation, gender-based violence (GBV) (particularly intimate-partner violence and conflict-related sexual violence (CRSV)), and detention/torture. This Activity has four main objectives: Objective 1: Understanding of TIP risks and prevention strategies increased, especially among government officials and vulnerable groups. Objective 2: Sustainability and availability of comprehensive, trauma-informed protection services increased to ensure seamless access for victims of trafficking and war-related trauma across Ukraine. Objective 3: Prosecution of those willfully engaged in TIP strengthened. Objective 4: Partnerships developed and strengthened across government, civil society, and socially responsible businesses to counter TIP at the decentralized, national, and European regional levels. USAID intends to award one (1) Cooperative Agreement pursuant to this NOFO. Subject to funding availability and at the discretion of the Agency, USAID intends to provide no more than $24,000,000 in total USAID funding over a five (5) year period.
