National Human Trafficking Victim Assistance Program

Human trafficking is modern-day slavery.

Traffickers target all types of people regardless of race, color, national origin, disability, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, socioeconomic status, or citizenship status. Survivors of trafficking come from all walks of life and are entrapped in many different settings. Learn the basics as we dispel myths and misconceptions.

The centerpiece of the U.S. Government efforts to combat human trafficking is Victims of Trafficking and Violence Protection Act, in part known as the – Trafficking Victim Protection Act (TVPA), and subsequent reauthorizations (TVPRA), which responds to the issue and crime of human trafficking through a multi-pronged approach – “Prevention, Protection, Prosecution, and Partnership.”

USCRI greatly appreciates the significant partnerships and efforts of its NHTVAP network in providing comprehensive and specialized services to survivors and their family members.

If you are a service provider located in one of our geographic areas, you may apply to join our NHTVAP network. Please call 1 (800) 307-4712 or email

In some instances, victims are trafficked for both commercial sex and labor simultaneously. Labor trafficking can happen in any industry. The most common industries that our clients have been trafficked in include:
