What is the Trafficking and Crime Victim Assistance Program?

The Trafficking and Crime Victim Assistance Program (TCVAP) is a cash assistance program for non-citizen victims of crime who are in need of immediate services and who are obtaining legal humanitarian status or assisting in the prosecution of a crime. This includes victims of human trafficking who have not yet been certified by the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR), victims of domestic violence, and other serious crimes.

Benefits and services available to certified trafficking victims and other victims eligible for the TCVAP, and their eligible family members, include cash assistance, food assistance, medical assistance, and social services to assist with adjustment and facilitate self-sufficiency. These individuals must still meet income and resource requirements.
