The Office to Monitor and Combat Trafficking in Persons (G/TIP) office engages in discussions with governments to help strengthen cooperative efforts to eradicate trafficking. It releases an annual Trafficking in Persons Report as required by the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000. The report is a diplomatic tool for the U.S. Government in combating trafficking in persons, serving as an instrument for continued dialogue, and a means to encourage increased prosecution, protection, and prevention programs.

The G/TIP office also makes available every year millions of US dollars in grants to organizations all over the world to implement programs in order to combat trafficking. To see a list of programs funded, see:
