Stenehjem: $1.25M available to address human trafficking

BISMARCK, N.D. — North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem (STEHN’-juhm) says $1.5 million is available for groups providing services relating to human trafficking.

The money was authorized by the 2015 Legislature as part of a comprehensive package of bills to address human trafficking in North Dakota.

In addition to organizations already providing prevention and treatment services to victims, the grants are available to entities seeking to expand into North Dakota, and to criminal justice agencies for training and enforcement efforts and prosecution of traffickers.

The grants will be awarded through a competitive process beginning in January.
