What will the money go

The Biden administration announced that the United States would accept up to 100 Ukrainians and others fleeing Russian aggression through established resettlement routes. Many of them will come to New York.

Therefore, the city is implementing an initiative to provide key services and support to Ukrainians affected by the Russian-Ukrainian war. The allocated $2 million will go to:

  • providing Ukrainians with immigration legal assistance (to help them take advantage of available forms of assistance and resettlement methods, including temporary protected status (TPS), humanitarian parole (parole) and much more);
  • public information campaign;
  • oral and written translation of documents;
  • direct assistance to displaced Ukrainian families moving to New York.

The initiative will be driven by a coalition of city agencies, citywide service providers and community organizations serving Ukrainians.

Ukrainians living in New York can find additional information online or call the immigration legal services hotline at 800-354-0365. These resources provide free and secure immigration legal advice, including assistance with applying for Temporary Protected Status (TPS).
