PHOENIX – Attorney General Mark Brnovich announced today that the Arizona Attorney General's Office is providing $300,000 in new community grant opportunities to organizations that provide support services and shelter to survivors of human trafficking. During the 2019 legislative session, the Attorney General’s Office worked with Representative Shawnna Bolick to secure funding for the anti-trafficking grants.
The AGO 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.
"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," said Attorney General Brnovich. "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."
“Human trafficking is modern-day slavery,” said Representative Shawnna Bolick. “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.
