Combating Forced Labor and Labor Trafficking of Adults and Children

This is a Notice of Intent.

An announcement is not related to this notice.

We are not accepting applications at this time.

Subject to the availability of funds, USDOL’s Bureau of International Labor Affairs (ILAB) intends to award, through a competitive process, up


to three cooperative agreements of up to $2 million each, for a total of $6 million in available funding to improve the capacity of labor stakeholders to better understand and address indicators of forced labor and labor trafficking.

For the purposes of this funding opportunity, the term labor stakeholders refers to a variety of actors related to labor or employment, including employers, government officials, workers, community leaders, and civil society organizations.

Each cooperative agreement will fund a project in a country to be proposed by the applicant.

Applicants must propose a country covered in the DOL’s Findings on the Worst Forms of Child Labor in accordance with the Trade and Development Act of 2000 or on the List of Goods Produced by Child Labor or Forced Labor as mandated by Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 200 5. Proposals for working in the fisheries sector in the Asia-Pacific region will not be considered as ILAB has published a separate notice of intent to fund such a project.

In each country, the project should achieve the following outcomes:
(1) improved understanding of indicators of forced labor and labor trafficking, (2) improved monitoring of working conditions by labor stakeholders to identify and address indicators and incidents of forced labor and labor trafficking, and (3) strengthened capacity of the labor inspectorate to address forced labor and labor trafficking.

ILAB expects to allow applicants to submit up to a maximum of three applications without proposing more than one country in a single application.

The Employment and Training Administration (ETA)’s Office of Grants Management anticipates publishing the Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) before September 30, 2017 (subject to change).

Please refer to: and for general guidelines and examples of previous cooperative agreement applications.

This notice does not include an FOA or any attachments.

It only constitutes a notice of USDOL’s intent to publish an FOA at a later date.

Interested applicants are encouraged to monitor for the FOA because, if an FOA is published, is the method by which the FOA will be made available to the public.

No email or paper copies of any FOA will be provided.
