Food Stamps Administrative Notice 05-03 – Eligibility of Victims of Severe Trafficking (October 1, 2004)

The categories of noncitizens eligible to participate in the Food Stamp Program (FSP) under the Trafficking Victims Protection Act have been expanded to include the minor children, spouses and in some cases the parents and siblings of victims of severe trafficking, as well as the originally included victims themselves. Victims of severe trafficking are eligible to participate in the FSP under the same conditions as noncitizens classified as refugees. (Regs @ is not quite sure what “non-severe” human trafficking is.) Also attached is a fact sheet on establishing TVPA eligibility. [Download]
