Resources for Immigrant Communities During the COVID-19 Pandemic

The City of New York is committed to helping New Yorkers significantly affected by the Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. Many city services are available to all New Yorkers no matter what your immigration status is and regardless of your ability to pay, although other eligibility requirements may apply. The City has compiled a list of resources for immigrants, including information on healthcare, health insurance, food assistance, housing and utilities, education and childcare, worker support and financial assistance, small business support, status of immigration proceedings and enforcement, and much more. 

This resource is for New York City residents.
