Human Trafficking

The Attorney General's Human Trafficking Commission was established in 2015. It is charged with collecting and evaluating data on human trafficking activities in the state and promoting public awareness and training efforts. The Attorney General's office partnered with North Dakota FUSE and the North Dakota Council of Abused Womens Services (CAWS) in these efforts.  

Information about Commission and committee meetings is available on the Meetings page.


The 64th and 65th Legislative Assemblies approved one-time appropriations through the Office of Attorney General to provide grant funding for human trafficking victims treatment and support services.

  • Summary of 2015 Grant Awards 
  • 2017 Grant Awards will not be determined until September 2017. We will update this page once the grants are awarded.

In addition, the Office of Attorney General received $600,000 in federal funds under the grant “FY15 Enhanced Collaborative Model to Combat Human Trafficking” through September 30, 2018. These grant funds support the BCI task force investigations of human trafficking. Although details of the task force's ongoing efforts are not publicly available, general information is reported in the Office of Attorney General Biennial Report.
