Established in 1996, NYC Emergency Management is a coordinating agency for the City of New York. The agency plans and prepares for emergencies, educates the public about preparedness, coordinates emergency response and recovery, and collects and disseminates emergency information.

The agency maintains a disciplined unit of emergency management personnel — including but not limited to: responders, planners, watch commanders, logisticians, community outreach, communications, administrative and support staff — to identify and respond to various hazards.

NYC Emergency Management (formerly the Office of Emergency Management or OEM) is undergoing a rebranding process as part of a comprehensive effort to increase the public’s awareness of our presence and role in the city. This rebranding includes phasing out the use of the OEM title, acronym, and logo.

NYC Emergency Management appreciates your comments and suggestions. You may contact us by mail, phone, fax, or email.

The Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs (MOIA) we have citizenship applications and related information at the street festival on 7/15/2017.

The Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs (MOIA) promotes the well-being of immigrant communities.

In the de Blasio administration, we have prioritized three broad goals:

enhance the economic, civic, and social integration of immigrant New Yorkers; facilitate access to justice for immigrant New Yorkers; and advocate for continued immigration reforms at all levels of government in order to eliminate inequities that impact New York’s immigrant communities.

Dear Visitor,

In his “One New York Rising Together” campaign platform, Mayor Bill de Blasio pledged to make New York City a safe and open community for all who live here, regardless of immigration status.

The work of our office is, at its heart, about inclusion. New York City’s Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs works to ensure that all immigrant New Yorkers are part of the City and have access to justice, and advocates for continued immigration reforms at all levels of government in order to eliminate inequities that impact New York’s immigrant communities. From creating a municipal ID program for all New Yorkers, regardless of immigration status, to launching an immigration legal services program that provides free and safe legal support for every immigrant New Yorker in their neighborhood and in their language, as well as establishing ActionHealthNYC with the aim of creating better immigrant access to health care, our policy initiatives and programs help millions of immigrants build safer, more stable, and more economically viable lives in New York City.

The Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs is here to assist and advocate for all immigrant New Yorkers. This is our mission and our promise.

Sincerely,

Nisha Agarwal

Quality

The National Committee for Quality Assurance (NCQA) releases ratings annually for Medicaid, Medicare and Commercial health plans that measure specific treatments, preventive care services and consumer satisfaction. Health plans voluntarily choose to participate in NCQA’s yearly ratings and publicly share their data, underscoring a strong commitment to transparency and open dialogue about health plan performance and improvement. Plans are rated from 0 to 5 stars in half point increments. For 2016-2017, 86 percent of our

Medicaid membership is in plans that received three or more stars in the NCQA Health Insurance Plan Ratings. Our top rated Medicaid plan is Rhode Island at 4.5 stars, while Michigan, Nebraska and New York are rated at

4 stars.

 

(Continued>>>)

 

 

We are driving quality improvement through innovative programs that help engage and empower people to become more active participants in their own health, and by collaborating with physicians and other health care professionals to close gaps in care. We leverage best-in class technology to support effective management of internal and external teams. Additionally, we offer custom programs at the regional and local level, recognizing the unique needs of members in specific markets.

For example, our Patient-Centered Care Model provides integrated physical, behavioral and social services, coordinating care across multi-disciplinary teams to achieve better care, better long-term health and lower costs. Member engagement programs like Baby Blocks support expectant mothers and new parents with customized wellness tips, information about what to expect at provider visits, and rewards for completing appointments during a newborn’s first 15 months. Outreach initiatives such as 4-H Food Smart Families are helping families make healthy habits a greater part of their everyday lives. Through these and other quality improvements and investments, we are continuing to make the health care experience more personal, accessible and affordable.

U.S. Representative Adriano Espaillat proudly represents New York’s Thirteenth Congressional District. He was sworn into office on January 3, 2017, during the 115th Congress.

Congressman Espaillat was born in the Dominican Republic in 1954 and came to the United States with his family when he was nine years old.  He grew up in the Washington Heights neighborhood in New York City and is the first Dominican-American to serve in the United States Congress.  Congressman Espaillat currently serves as a member of the influential U.S. House Foreign Affairs Committee, the House Committee on Education and the Workforce, and the House Select Committee on Small Business.  He is a member of the Congressional Hispanic Caucus (CHC) and serves as Chairman of the CHC Task Force for Transportation, Infrastructure and Housing.

 

A steadfast champion for working- and middle-class New Yorkers, Congressman Espaillat is a staunch advocate of a fair living wage, immediate and effective investments in affordable housing, meaningful criminal justice reform, infrastructure improvements, expanded youth programs, and better educational opportunities.

 

Throughout the tenure of his career in public service, Congressman Espaillat has been a vocal advocate for protecting tenants, improving schools, and making serious, smart investments in economic development, job creation, and environmental protection.  Prior to coming to Congress, he served as a New York State Senator during which he represented the neighborhoods of Marble Hill, Inwood, Washington Heights, Hamilton Heights, West Harlem, the Upper West Side, Hell’s Kitchen, Clinton, and Chelsea.

 

While in the New York State Senate, Congressman Espaillat served as the Ranking Member of the Senate Housing, Construction, and Community Development Committee; Chairman of the Senate Puerto Rican/Latino Caucus; and as a member of the Environmental Conservation, Economic Development, Codes, Insurance, and Judiciary committees. Prior to his tenure as a state senator, he served in the New York State Assembly, and in 1996 became the first Dominican-American elected to a state legislature.  In 2002, Espaillat was elected chair of the New York State Black, Puerto Rican, Hispanic and Asian Legislative Caucus.

 

Prior to entering elected office, Congressman Espaillat served as the Manhattan Court Services Coordinator for the NYC Criminal Justice Agency, a non-profit organization that provides indigent legal services and works to reduce unnecessary pretrial detention and post-sentence incarceration costs.  He later worked as Director of the Washington Heights Victims Services Community Office, an organization offering counseling and other services to families of victims of homicides and other crimes, and as the Director of Project Right Start, a national initiative funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation to combat substance abuse by educating the parents of pre-school children.

 

Congressman Espaillat is a proud father and grandfather.

New York City residents are now able to sign up for IDNYC – a government-issued identification card that is available to all City residents age 14 and older. Immigration status does not matter. Mayor Bill de Blasio announced this initiative in his State of the City address in January 2014 and less than one year later proudly launched the largest municipal identification card program in the nation.

GETTING YOUR IDNYC CARD:

All New York City residents age 14 and older can get an IDNYC card. Applicants must complete an application and submit it at an IDNYC Enrollment Center. Applicants are also required to present proof of identity and residency in New York City. Many types of documents are accepted, all of which are listed here. You must submit your application and proof of identity and residency in person at an IDNYC Enrollment Center or an IDNYC Pop-Up Enrollment Center, which travels to neighborhoods across the City. After you apply for the card, it will be sent to you in the mail.

The IDNYC card is free for all New Yorkers who apply during the first year of the program – until December 31, 2016. Cards are valid for five years from the date the application is approved. The application process is accessible to people with limited English proficiency and people with disabilities.

USING YOUR IDNYC CARD:

The IDNYC card is an accessible and secure document that enables residents to access City services and grant admission to City buildings, such as schools. In addition, the card can be presented as proof of identification for interacting with the police and is an accepted form of identification for opening a banking account at select financial institutions.

You are able to use your IDNYC card at any public library in New York. The card can be integrated with your account at the New York, Brooklyn, and Queens Public Library Systems. This is the first time a single card can be utilized across all three systems. To use your IDNYC card at a library, ask a librarian or a library clerk at your local branch to connect your IDNYC card with your library account or sign up for a new library account and use your IDNYC card as your library card.

Furthermore, a number of additional benefits are available to IDNYC cardholders including the opportunity to sign up for free one-year memberships at 40 of the city’s leading museums, zoos, concert halls, and botanical gardens. The IDNYC card offers a full package of exciting benefits that includes discounts on movie tickets, sporting events, prescription drugs, fitness and health centers, supermarkets, and New York City attractions. The card is also accepted at a number of banks and credit unions in the city to open a bank account.

CARD AVAILABILITY:

The IDNYC card is now available at Enrollment Centers across all five boroughs. You can also use our map to get directions to your nearest Enrollment Center.

PRIVACY AND CONFIDENTIALITY:

The City will protect the confidentiality of all Municipal ID Card applicants to the maximum extent allowable by applicable federal and state law, and in accordance with Local Law 35.

In addition, the City will not ask applicants for information about their immigration status for purposes of obtaining the card in accordance with Executive Orders 34 and 41.

You can learn more about how your information will be protected by the City here.

LANGUAGE AND DISABILITY ACCESS:

The IDNYC program’s goal is to ensure that neither language nor disability is a barrier to accessing services, regardless of the level of English proficiency or disability. Click here to read the IDNYC Language and Disability Access Plan.

 

Your IDNYC card is a broadly accepted, official form of identification. IDNYC is accepted:

  • By City agencies to access many services and programs;
