Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2017, $873,508)

The project aims to answer three main questions: 1) what personal or structural vulnerabilities put US citizens at risk for labor trafficking; 2) where does labor trafficking experience fall on a continuum of labor exploitation for US citizen workers; 3) how do US citizens experience labor trafficking victimization?

These questions will be answered through a survey of individuals who are at high risk for victimization in three US sites (NYC, San Diego, Anchorage) as well as one on one interviews with a sub sample of these victims. The samples will be derived from snowball sampling techniques and collaboration with social service providers.

Note: this project contains a research and/or development component, as defined in applicable law, and complies with Part 200, Uniform Requirements - 2 CFR, 200.210 (a) (14). CA/NCF
