Adopt a resolution authorizing the submission of a grant application to the Texas Office of the Governor, Public Safety Office, Criminal Justice Division for the Nueces County Innovations to Address Commercial Sexual Exploitation Project.
The Office of the Governor, Public Safety Office, Criminal Justice Division has released a funding announcement for the County Innovations to Address Commercial Sexual Exploitation program. The purpose of the announcement is to solicit applications from counties for innovative projects that prevent, investigate, and/or prosecute the commercial sexual exploitation of people in Texas. The following list of eligible activities and costs applies generally to all projects under this announcement.

Targeted Investigation and Prosecution (CSEP): The investigation and/or prosecution of crimes related to the commercial sexual exploitation of people, including the use of dedicated personnel such as investigators, analysts, task force coordinators, or prosecutors.
Program Evaluation and Assessment: Evaluation and/or assessment of the effectiveness of targeted criminal justice responses.
Innovative Programs (CSEP): Innovative programs that address commercial sexual exploitation but do not fit neatly into the other eligible activities. This may include a combination of approaches such as addressing risk and protective factors for victimization or perpetration; prevention education; civil enforcement; and other efforts to disrupt the market for commercial sex.
