Grants to Texas state agencies, public and private nonprofit institutions of higher education, independent school districts, Native American tribes, councils of governments, nonprofit corporations, and units of local government for child and youth support services. The purpose of this funding is to recover victims of Commercial Sexual Exploitation of Youth (CSEY) through collaborative efforts spanning multiple systems and to support the healing of survivors of CSEY through immediate and long-term services and supports they need to heal and thrive.

Specialized services for this CSEY population may include the following:

  1. Placement capacity for emergency residential placement;
  2. Placement capacity for long-term residential placement;
  3. CSEY advocates;
  4. Drop-in center/non-residential assessment services; and
  5. Innovative services that advance recovery and restoration efforts in the State of Texas.

All projects under this funding announcement must meet these requirements:

  • Cultural competency: Applicants must be culturally competent when providing services to victims. Victim service providers must have the ability to blend cultural knowledge and sensitivity with victim restoration skills for a more effective and culturally appropriate recovery process. Cultural competency occurs when: (1) cultural knowledge, awareness, and sensitivity are integrated into action and policy; (2) the service is relevant to the needs of the community and provided by trained staff, board members, and management; and (3) an advocate or organization recognizes each client is different with different needs, feelings, ideas and barriers.
  • Victim services assessment survey: All recipients of funding under this announcement may be required to participate in a victim services assessment during their grant period, as directed by PSO.
  • Special requirements for vehicle purchases: Only non-profits will be eligible to purchase vehicles under this funding announcement. The vehicles must be for the purpose of transporting victims to receive various services. Applicants must explain in their eGrants application how the vehicles will be utilized and how that strengthens their delivery of victim services.

Details of the program types can be found starting at page 2 of the Funding Announcement, see Attached Files, below.
