Trafficking and Crime Victims Assistance Program

Refugee Programs Bureau (RPB)

The Trafficking and Crime Victims Assistance Program (TCVAP) provides eligible non-citizen victims of human trafficking, domestic violence and other serious crimes services such as cash assistance, food benefits, employment and social services.  Benefits and services are modeled after the Refugee Resettlement Program which follow the same grant amounts, structure and time frames as Refugee Cash Assistance (RCA) and CalWORKs.  The TCVAP is a state-funded program and is administered by the Refugee Programs Bureau (RPB).  RPB provides services to counties and stakeholders throughout California to administer the TCVAP.
