    Proposed Projects:
    Title: Request for Assistance for Child Victims of Human 
Trafficking.
    OMB No.: 0970-0362.
    Description: The William Wilberforce Trafficking Victims Protection 
Reauthorization Act (TVPRA) of 2008, Public Law 110-457, directs the 
U.S. Secretary of Health and Human Service (HHS), upon receipt of 
credible information that a non-U.S. citizen, non-Lawful Permanent 
Resident (alien) child may have been subjected to a severe form of 
trafficking in persons and is seeking Federal assistance available to 
victims of trafficking, to promptly determine if the child is eligible 
for interim assistance. The law further directs the Secretary of HHS to 
determine if a child receiving interim assistance is eligible for 
assistance as a victim of a severe form of trafficking in persons after 
consultation with the Attorney General, the Secretary of Homeland 
Security, and nongovernmental organizations with expertise on victims 
of severe form of trafficking.
    In developing procedures for collecting the necessary information 
from potential child victims of trafficking, their case managers, 
attorneys, or other representatives to allow HHS to grant interim 
eligibility, HHS devised a form. HHS has determined that the use of a 
standard form to collect information is the best way to ensure 
requestors are notified of their option to request assistance for child

form takes into consideration the need to compile information regarding 
a child's circumstances and experiences in a non-directive, child-
