New York City is developing  a new program to help migrants it is housing in Buffalo-area hotels move into apartments, reports the Gothamist.

The news organization said New York City hopes to work with Jewish Family Services of Western New York to assist over 500 migrants find more permanent — and less expensive — housing. The nonprofit agency would also help the migrants find jobs and to seek asylum, Gothamist reports.

The arrangement is similar to one previously suggested by state Sen. Sean Ryan of Buffalo, who has been involved in talks leading to the new program, according to the news report.
