Regional Immigration Assistance Center: Region 3

In 2015, the New York State Office of Indigent Legal Services awarded a grant to Albany County to establish a Regional Immigration Assistance Center. The goal of the Center is to provide training and other technical assistance to indigent legal service providers representing non-citizens in Criminal and Family Court proceedings to ensure that immigration implications are considered in compliance with the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Padilla v. Kentucky, 559 U.S. 356 (2010)
