HHS: Instructions Requests for Assistance for Child Victims of Human Trafficking (Current as of 2022) [pdf]

Provides instructions that professionals working with immigrant children who are victims of human trafficking (sex or labor) can us to file requests for assistance with HHS. These requests for assistance lead to issuance of child eligibility letters that make immigrant trafficked children eligible for federal and state public benefits to the same extent as refugees. Children must apply while they are under the age of 18. Eligibility letters once issues do not end and last until the child can apply for and be granted a T visa or lawful permanent residency through another form of immigration relief.
