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 Services (HHS), upon receipt of credible information that an 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 victims of trafficking and to make prompt and consistent determinations about the child’s eligibility for assistance. Specifically, the form asks the requestor for his/her identifying information, for information on the child, information describing the type of trafficking and circumstances surrounding the situation, and the strengths and needs of the child. The form also asks the requestor to verify the information contained in the form because the information could be the basis for a determination of an alien child’s eligibility for federally funded benefits. Finally, the form takes into consideration the need to compile information regarding a child’s circumstances and experiences in a nondirective, child-friendly way, and assists the requestor in assessing whether the child may have been subjected to trafficking in persons. The information provided through the completion of a Request for Assistance for Child Victims of Human Trafficking form will enable HHS to make prompt determinations regarding the eligibility of an alien child for interim assistance, inform HHS’ determination regarding the child’s eligibility for assistance as a victim of a severe form of trafficking in persons, facilitate the required consultation process, and enable HHS to assess potential child protection issues. HHS proposes to make several small, technical changes to the form, including the elimination of an unnecessary paragraph and updated references to the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000, as amended, to reflect changes to that law. Respondents: Representatives of governmental and nongovernmental entities providing social, legal, or protective services to alien persons under the age of 18 (children) in the United States who are neither U.S. citizens nor Lawful Permanent Residents and who may have been subjected to severe forms of trafficking in persons.

Submission for OMB Review; Comment Request

    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 Services (HHS), upon receipt of 
credible information that an 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 
victims of trafficking and to make prompt and consistent determinations 
about the child's eligibility for assistance.
    Specifically, the form asks the requestor for his/her identifying 
information, for information on the child, information describing the 
type of trafficking and circumstances surrounding the situation, and 
the strengths and needs of the child. The form also asks the requestor 
to verify the information contained in the form because the information 
could be the basis for a determination of an alien child's eligibility 
for federally funded benefits. Finally, the form takes into 
consideration the need to compile information regarding a child's 
circumstances and experiences in a non-directive, child-friendly way, 
and assists the requestor in assessing whether the child may have been 
subjected to trafficking in persons.
    The information provided through the completion of a Request for 
Assistance for Child Victims of Human Trafficking form will enable HHS 
to make prompt determinations regarding the eligibility of an alien 
child for interim assistance, inform HHS' determination regarding the 
child's eligibility for assistance as a victim of a severe form of 
trafficking in persons, facilitate the required consultation process, 
and enable HHS to assess potential child protection issues.
    HHS proposes to make several small, technical changes to the form, 
including the elimination of an unnecessary paragraph and updated 
references to the Trafficking Victims Protection Act of 2000, as 
amended, to reflect changes to that law.
    Respondents: Representatives of governmental and nongovernmental 
entities providing social, legal, or protective services to alien 
persons under the age of 18 (children) in the United States who are 
neither U.S. citizens nor Lawful Permanent Residents and who may have 
been subjected to severe forms of trafficking in persons.
