NEW YORK STATE OFFICE FOR NEW AMERICANS OPENS REGISTRATION FOR FREE DEFERRED ACTION FOR CHILDHOOD ARRIVALS (DACA)/DEFERRED ACTION FOR PARENTS OF AMERICANS (DAPA) INFORMATION SEMINAR IN NEWBURGH, NY

NEWBURGH, New York – The New York State Office for New Americans (ONA) has opened registration for a free information seminar for immigrants on November 2, 2015. The seminar will take place at 321 South William Street, Newburgh, NY and is part of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s opportunity agenda for New Americans, which aims to help immigrants fully participate in New York State’s civic and economic life. The ONA Opportunity Center is hosted locally by Catholic Charities Community Services of Orange County.

WHAT: Information Seminar

WHEN: November 2, 2015 from 10:30am-11:30am

To register for this training, contact Jennifer Ramirez before October 26, 2015 at 845-562-4736 or Jennifer.Ramirez@archny.org. Registration is required to attend.

Governor Cuomo established ONA to assist newcomers in the State who are eager to contribute to our economy and become part of the family of New York, and made history by making the Office the first state-level immigrant office created by statute in the country. The cornerstone of ONAs effort is the creation of a network of 26 neighborhood-based Opportunity Centers located throughout New York State where immigrants are assisted with English-for-Speakers-of-Other-Languages training; naturalization and DACA assistance; federal immigration law and policies information and referrals; and business development training.
