Trump administration plans to announce $35 million in grants to provide housing for victims of human trafficking

According to a report from Fox News, the Trump administration is expected to announce on Tuesday that it is directing $35 million worth of grants to organizations that will provide "transitional or short-term" housing assistance to victims of human trafficking. The assistance would cover expenses like rent, utilities, security deposits, and relocation costs.

The report states that the announcement will be made during a roundtable Tuesday that will feature Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump, as well as Attorney General William Barr and other Justice Department officials. The grants are expected to be issued from the Justice Department's Office for Victims of Crime, rather than from the Department of Housing and Urban Development.

According to the report, the grants would provide between six and 24 months of assistance for victims of human trafficking, and also help those victims find permanent housing and employment. Occupational training and counseling will also be offered.
