Direct Service Implications
Local service providers will need to adapt to newly accessible resources and services as previously undocumented immigrants are able to obtain ID. City services and non-profit organizations should be providing more information as January approaches. The NYC Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs currently offers a variety of services, such as housing, domestic violence, and employment services, among others, regardless of citizenship status. An additional manual can also inform clients of their eligibility for certain services.
