On Nov. 10, 2022, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced the continuation of Temporary Protected Status (TPS) for El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Nepal.
Eligible beneficiaries under the TPS designations for El Salvador, Honduras, Nicaragua, and Nepal, as well as the 2011 Haiti designation and the 2013 Sudan designation living in the United States will be able to keep their Temporary Protected Status until June 30, 2024.
Individuals who were newly granted TPS under the 2021 TPS designation of Haiti or the 2022 TPS designation of Sudan, but who did not have TPS under the 2011 Haiti designation or the 2013 Sudan designation, are not covered by this litigation compliance notice. Their TPS grants remain valid in accordance with their individual notices of approval from USCIS.
Important: Individuals who are approved or pending for TPS are not eligible for SNAP or TAFDC benefits, unless they qualify under a different noncitizen status, i.e., Refugee.
