New York State Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that the authorities would bear the cost of processing applications for US citizenship from 2 to thousands of low-income immigrants. The lucky ones will be selected by lottery as part of the NaturalizeNY program.

“We are a nation of immigrants, and New York is convinced that diversity is our greatest value,” Cuomo said at the launch of the lottery. “Today we inform everyone that we welcome you to our community with open arms.”

Individuals with an income in the range of $ 30,240 - $ 60,480 per year can count on free naturalization.

You can register for participation on the site or the New Americans Hotline at 1-800-566-7636.

At the moment, the cost of processing all the necessary papers for naturalization is $ 680 per person, says the head of the office of the governor Rossan Rosado.

“We don't think citizenship should be a luxury,” explains Rosado.

The NaturalizeNY program is implemented with the assistance of the New York Daily News and various public and charitable organizations. The financial burden of paying applications from 2 to thousands of immigrants will reportedly fall on private philanthropists.

“The state's proposal is fantastic,” says Jim Rich, editor-in-chief of NY Daily News. - We are pleased to be part of such an important program. There are so many hardworking people who deserve this opportunity, and it's good that their dreams can come true. "

NY Daily News also organizes with the City University of New York (CUNY) hot line on immigration in the United States. Annual project called Citizenship NOW! ("Citizenship Now") in April was already the 14 time.
