Partnership for Freedom Reimagine: Opportunity Challenge

Deadline: 
Sunday, November 17, 2013
Description: 

On September 16, 2013, at the White House, the U.S. Departments of Justice, Health and Human Services, and Housing and Urban Development, along with Humanity United, launched the Partnership for Freedom. This is a public-private partnership designed to spur innovative solutions to the challenges of human trafficking. Today, we are opening the first of three innovation competitions—Reimagine: Opportunity, which is dedicated to improving the infrastructure of support for survivors of modern-day slavery.

The goal of Reimagine: Opportunity is to inspire experts in the anti-trafficking field to connect with new partners and generate new ideas for sustainable housing, economic empowerment, and stronger social services for survivors. The Partnership for Freedom is seeking the most innovative, attainable, and sustainable ideas, and will provide the needed support and funds to bring them to life.

We invite you to participate in this competition by assembling your team, formulating your ideas, and submitting your application by November 17, 2013.

Together, we can turn our ideas into opportunity.

Submissions are due on November 17 and will be reviewed by a panel of anti-trafficking technical experts from the entities leading the Partnership for Freedom. Up to 25 finalists will be selected in December 2013 and invited to attend the Innovation Workshop in Washington, DC in January 2014. Following the Innovation Workshop, the finalists will refine their ideas and submit proposals to be evaluated by a panel of judges. We anticipate awarding prize grants totaling $1.8 million to 1-3 winning organizations; however, there may be additional winners depending on the quality of the ideas and available funding. Grand prize winner(s) will be announced in March 2014.
