    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    Description: OTIP awards cooperative agreements for grantees to provide case management services to foreign national victims of a severe form of trafficking in persons who have received or are actively pursuing HHS Certification or Eligibility and their qualified family members (e.g., minor dependent children of victims or family members with derivative T visas), as authorized in the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000 (22 U.S.C. 7105(b)(1)(B)). Grantees provide services to qualified persons through a national network of subrecipient organizations.

    OTIP proposes to collect information to measure grant project performance, provide technical assistance to grantees, assess program outcomes, improve program evaluation, respond to congressional inquiries and mandated reports, and inform policy and program development that is responsive to the needs of victims.

    The information collection captures information on participant demographics (e.g., age, sex, and country of origin), types of trafficking experienced (sex, labor, or both), types of client enrollment, types of services and benefits provided along with aggregate information on the amount of money spent on each type of service provided, the types of entities providing medical services, the amount of money provided to those entities, the amount of money expended on each type of client enrollment, types of partnerships developed through the grant with subrecipients, and the types of training and technical assistance provided to subrecipient organizations or other partners.
