    SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

    Description: The Preventing Sex Trafficking and Strengthening Families Act of 2014 mandated the NAC to develop a report describing how each state and territory has implemented its recommendations to address sex trafficking in children and youth. The NAC proposes to administer a survey allowing states to assess their progress in implementing NAC recommendations. Submissions will allow states to document their efforts in the following sections: Multidisciplinary Response, Screening and Identification, Child Welfare, Service Provision, Housing, Law Enforcement and Prosecution, Judiciary, Demand Reduction, Prevention, Legislation and Regulation, Research and Data, and Funding. Each state will have the opportunity to provide a self-assessed tier ranking for each recommendation, a justification of their assessment, sources for their assessment, and the public or private nature of those sources.

    Respondents: State Governors, Child Welfare Agencies, Local Law Enforcement, and Other Local Agencies.
