Applicants will need to attend an in-person interview at the Social Services office nearest their home. At the interview, the applicant will need to share that he/she or a family member has been a victim of trafficking or crime.
Applicants need to provide proof of being a trafficking victim by submitting evidence from police, government agency, court records, domestic violence program, copy of completed T Visa application (Form I-914), or legal, clinical, medical, or other professional from whom applicant has sought assistance in dealing with crime. This proof can be provided at the interview if it is available or the case worker will request that the proof be provided before eligibility can be determined.
Non-citizen victims of crime and their eligible family members in the TCVAP are potentially eligible for benefits and services to the same extent as refugees.
