Georgia officials will now have more tools to fight human trafficking and provide more support and resources to victims of these crimes, thanks to nearly $153 million in grant funding.

First Lady Marty Kemp joined GRACE Commission members, U.S. Department of Justice officials, Attorney General Chris Carr, and U.S. Attorneys BJay Pak and Charles Peeler Tuesday to announce the additional funding. The grant awards will support a wide range of activities across the state, including $4.3 million which will be used to assist law enforcement officials and victim service providers in prosecuting human traffickers and aiding survivors.
