Notice of information collection for HHS Certification for Foreign Adult Victims of Human Trafficking

  1. Date Announced

    June 26, 2018

    The Office on Trafficking in Persons (OTIP) within ACF issues HHS Certification Letters that grant adult foreign victims of human trafficking eligibility for federal and state benefits and services to the same extent as refugees. To issue HHS Certification Letters, it is necessary for OTIP to collect information from a victim, or a victim’s representative. To that end, ACF is providing notice of an information collection that will ask if the victim is in need of case management services and the current location (city, state) of the victim, and refer the victim to an appropriate service provider in his or her area, if requested. OTIP will also ask about the victim's primary language and urgent concerns, such as medical care or housing, and transmit this information to the service provider with the victim's consent. [ID #898]
