About the Office of New Americans

The Office of New Americans (ONA) in the Department of Human Services supports new Americans through outreach and education, and works on priorities to build trust, improve access to social services, workforce development and employment services, and legal services for immigrants. The ONA seeks to increase accessibility to State programs available to new Americans, including those who speak languages other than English. The ONA also serves as a resource for other state agencies to amplify education and outreach on state initiatives and programs to ensure they reach all new American communities in our state.
