From the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs (MOIA)

The DOE is committed to keeping all students and families safe in our schools. Accessing school-based services—including educational services and supports, free breakfast or lunch, or school-based health clinics—does not put those seeking a green card/permanent legal resident card or a visa at risk of being considered a public charge. Receipt of Medicaid benefits by students under age 21 is also excluded from public charge consideration.
