OMB No.: 0970—NEW. Description: The Trafficking Victims Protection Act, Public Law 106–386, Division A, 114 Stat. 1464 (2000), requires the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to certify adult alien (‘‘foreign’’) victims of severe forms of trafficking in persons (‘‘human trafficking’’) who are willing to assist law enforcement in the investigation and prosecution of human trafficking, unless unable to cooperate due to physical or psychological trauma, and who have either made a bona fide application for T nonimmigrant status that has not been denied or been granted Continued Presence (CP) from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Issued by the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR) within the HHS Administration for Children and Families, certification letters grant adult foreign victims of human trafficking access to federal and state benefits and services to the same extent as refugees. In general, ORR initiates the certification process when it receives a notice from DHS that DHS has granted a foreign victim of trafficking CP or T nonimmigrant status, or has determined an application for T nonimmigrant status is bona fide. To issue certification letters, it is necessary for ORR to collect information from a victim’s representative, such as an attorney, case manager, or law enforcement victim specialist, including an address to send the letter. In line with other ORR AntiTrafficking in Persons Program activities, ORR may ask if the victim is in need of a service provider 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. ORR will also ask about the victim’s language and urgent concerns, such as medical care or housing, and transmit this information to the service provider. Finally ORR collects information, such as the victim’s sex and the type of human trafficking the victim experienced, to provide to Congress in an annual report on U.S. Government activities to combat trafficking that is prepared by the U.S. Department of Justice. Congress requires HHS and other appropriate Federal agencies to report, at a minimum, information on the number of persons who received benefits or other services under subsections (b) and (f) of section 7105 of Title 22 of the U.S. Code, the TVPA, in connection with programs or activities funded or administered by HHS. HHS includes in these annual reports additional information about the victims that it collects when assisting each victim to obtain certification or eligibility. ORR will store this information and any other details regarding the victim’s case in the Trafficking Victims Tracking System (TVTS) on ORR’s secure database. Other details maintained in the victim’s file may include ORR staff actions, referrals, and notes regarding the victim’s interest in receiving services. Maintaining victim records on TVTS will ensure efficient service for victims, allow ORR staff to track victims’ progress toward certification, verify their eligibility for benefits, and organize information for reporting to Congress. The TVTS also includes information about foreign victims of trafficking and potential victims who were minors when an eligibility letter was sought from ORR. Information about these individuals is collected pursuant to an OMB-approved collection, OMB Control Number 0970–0362. In January 2011, the Archivist of the United States approved an Electronic System Schedule for the disposition of TVTS records. Respondents: Respondents can include attorneys, legal representatives, social service providers, case managers, and volunteers acting on behalf of the adult foreign victim of trafficking.

Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

    Title: Trafficking Victims Tracking System.
    OMB No.: 0970--NEW.
    Description: The Trafficking Victims Protection Act, Public Law 
106-386, Division A, 114 Stat. 1464 (2000), requires the Department of 
Health and Human Services (HHS) to certify adult alien (``foreign'') 
victims of severe forms of trafficking in persons (``human 
trafficking'') who are willing to assist law enforcement in the 
investigation and prosecution of human trafficking, unless unable to 
cooperate due to physical or psychological trauma, and who have either 
made a bona fide application for T nonimmigrant status that has not 
been denied or been granted Continued Presence (CP) from the U.S. 
Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Issued by the Office of Refugee 
Resettlement (ORR) within the HHS Administration for Children and 
Families, certification letters grant adult foreign victims of human 
trafficking access to federal and state benefits and services to the 
same extent as refugees.
    In general, ORR initiates the certification process when it 
receives a notice from DHS that DHS has granted a foreign victim of 
trafficking CP or T nonimmigrant status, or has determined an 
application for T nonimmigrant status is bona fide. To issue 
certification letters, it is necessary for ORR to collect information 
from a victim's representative, such as an attorney, case manager, or 
law enforcement victim specialist, including an address to send the 
letter. In line with other ORR Anti-Trafficking in Persons Program 
activities, ORR may ask if the victim is in need of a service provider 
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. ORR will also ask about the victim's language and urgent 
concerns, such as medical care or housing, and transmit this 
information to the service provider.
    Finally ORR collects information, such as the victim's sex and the 
type of human trafficking the victim experienced, to provide to 
Congress in an annual report on U.S. Government activities to combat 
trafficking that is prepared by the U.S. Department of Justice. 
Congress requires HHS and other appropriate Federal agencies to report, 
at a minimum, information on the number of persons who received 
benefits or other services under subsections (b) and (f) of section 
7105 of Title 22 of the U.S. Code, the TVPA, in connection with 
programs or activities funded or administered by HHS. HHS includes in 
these annual reports additional information about the victims that it 
collects when assisting each victim to obtain certification or 
eligibility. ORR will store this information and any other details 
regarding the victim's case in the Trafficking Victims Tracking System 
(TVTS) on ORR's secure database. Other details maintained in the 
victim's file may include ORR staff actions, referrals, and notes 
regarding the victim's interest in receiving services. Maintaining 
victim records on TVTS will ensure efficient service for victims, allow 
ORR staff to track victims' progress toward certification, verify their 
eligibility for benefits, and organize information for reporting to 
Congress.
    The TVTS also includes information about foreign victims of 
trafficking and potential victims who were minors when an eligibility 
letter was sought from ORR. Information about these individuals is 
collected pursuant to an OMB-approved collection, OMB Control Number 
0970-0362.
    In January 2011, the Archivist of the United States approved an 
Electronic System Schedule for the disposition of TVTS records.
    Respondents: Respondents can include attorneys, legal 
representatives, social service providers, case managers, and 
volunteers acting on behalf of the adult foreign victim of trafficking.
