2022 SURVIVOR SUPPORT GRANT PROGRAM
“The goal of the SWFL Coalition Against Human Trafficking Survivor Support Grant is to aid a specific want or need of a survivor of human trafficking. The Coalition seeks to accomplish this goal by awarding grants to Coalition partner agencies who work directly with survivors.”
Thank you all for helping to make the Survivor Support Grant Program’s first year a successful one! In 2021, over $6,500 in grants was approved and distributed to our Regional Partner agencies and organizations providing direct services to survivors of human trafficking. As we move into the new year, the Board of Directors would like to expand the scope of this grant program. Therefore, beginning January 1, 2022, the maximum amount awarded with each Survivor Support Grant approval has been increased from $500 to $1,000. Agencies may apply more than once per cycle.
