The Department of State Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons (TIP Office) has announced an open competition for FY 2018 projects to combat trafficking in persons outside of the United States.
The TIP Office encourages applicants to submit strong proposals for larger, longer-term projects that align with U.S. government priorities, address human trafficking challenges on a significant scale, and offer the potential to have a systemic and sustainable impact among other factors.
  • Organizations eligible to apply include U.S.-based and foreign non-profits, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), for-profit organizations, institutions of higher education, and public international organizations (PIOs).
  • For-profit organizations are not permitted to generate profits from grant-funded activities.
  • U.S. government agencies may respond to this NOFO with proposals for projects that would be funded through an Interagency Acquisition Agreement.
  • While foreign governments are not eligible to apply, governments may be beneficiaries of programs provided that funding does not pay salaries of government agency personnel and that such assistance is not restricted by U.S. law or policy.
How to Apply

Proposals must be submitted via by 5:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time (EDT) on November 13, 2017, to be eligible for consideration. If an organization has difficulty submitting a proposal near the deadline, the only way that a late application will be accepted is if the applicant opens a ticket with the help desk to resolve the problem prior to the deadline.
