The 2018 TIP Office Program to End Modern Slavery (PEMS) Funding Opportunity invites applicants to submit innovative proposals describing how they will advance transformational programs and projects that seek to achieve a measurable and substantial reduction of the prevalence of modern slavery in targeted populations in priority countries or jurisdictions. Applicants shall develop a clear strategy that leverages funding awarded under this funding opportunity to attract other donor resources to reduce the prevalence of modern slavery— sex trafficking and forced labor of adults and children, men and women, and transgender individuals—in targeted populations. Such a strategy should complement and build upon existing anti-trafficking efforts, develop sustainable local capacity of governments and civil society, and incorporate survivor perspectives. The strategy should include robust monitoring, evaluation, and reporting and demonstrate a plan for contributing data, analysis, lessons learned, and promising practices to global efforts to combat modern slavery.
