Each year, ATEST sends to congressional appropriations subcommittees requests for inclusions as they work to complete final appropriations. ATEST’s Fiscal Year 2022 Federal Appropriations Recommendations includes a Letter to the Office of Management and Budget which breaks out its recommendations over 26 human trafficking programs.
