Our hearts go out to those affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. During this uncertain time, NHTTAC remains strong in its efforts to support you by providing remote technical assistance for your organizations and communities. Our team of expert consultants, including many with lived experience, stand ready to demonstrate their support in a variety of ways—and we will continue to provide updates and access to new and existing resources in the days to come.
Who We Are
NHTTAC delivers training and technical assistance (T/TA) on behalf of the Office on Trafficking in Persons (OTIP) to inform and enhance the public health response to human trafficking. Operating under the Administration for Children and Families within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, OTIP's mission is to combat human trafficking by supporting and leading systems that prevent trafficking through public awareness and to protect victims through identification and assistance, helping them rebuild their lives and become self-sufficient. NHTTAC supports OTIP in developing and delivering training and technical assistance that strengthens anti-trafficking work and aids OTIP in fulfilling its mission.

SOAR offers standardized, accredited trainings for individuals, organizations, and communities that address human trafficking in behavioral health, health care, public health, and social services settings.

We provide professional development opportunities for survivors through fellowships and scholarships.
