The Division of Immigrant Policies and Affairs (DIPA) ensures that the services, programs, and protections of the Department of Labor (DOL) are available to all workers – including the large and growing group of people who move to New York from another country.
The immigrant and refugee population of New York State continues to grow. We see the opportunities with this influx of new Americans. We believe immigration is a boom to our economy, and a necessary input to New York businesses.
Our mission is to support and protect immigrants where necessary, help integrate immigrants into the economic fabric of the state, and support businesses with compliance and other services.
