    The Human Trafficking Victim Assistance Fund (HTVAF) seeks to ensure that Kansas crime victims: are aware of their rights, have their rights protected, are aware of the services available to them, and have access to quality services. The Human Trafficking Victim Assistance Fund was established by the 2013 Legislature (K.S.A. § 75-758) to provide training regarding human trafficking for law enforcement agencies throughout Kansas, and to support care, treatment and other services for victims of human trafficking and commercial sexual exploitation of a child.

    Activities may include, but are not limited to, twenty four hour crisis intervention and support or emergency services; counseling; assistance with compensation claims, medical advocacy, immigration advocacy and associated fees, civil court advocacy (for example, assistance with divorce decrees from originating country), creditors, community referrals and restitution, with the exception that no direct compensation may be paid to a crime victim; prosecutor or court related services; shelter support counseling, social services support and criminal justice advocacy.
