Evaluation of NYCitizenship Program Identifies Valuable Outcomes

Emanuel Robinson

The NYCitizenship Program improves access to citizenship services for all immigrants, according to a newly released evaluation report. Westat, which conducted the evaluation for the New York City’s Mayor’s Office for Economic Opportunity (NYC Opportunity), also assessed the effectiveness of the Community Navigator model and outreach strategies, and found that the program greatly enhanced system efficiencies.

The evaluation identified:

  • What outreach and engagement strategies worked well for the program
  • How the program could be improved
  • Potential for replicating the program in other communities

Emanuel Robinson, Ph.D., a Westat Senior Study Director and lead author of the report stated, “Westat was honored to work with the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs and New York City’s Human Resources Administration to evaluate their NYCitizenship program, determine outcomes, and make recommendations for future models of similar programs.”
