This report is the final of three that describes the social and economic needs of low-income immigrants in Suffolk and Nassau Counties, New York, commonly referred to as Long Island. It was supported by a 3-year grant from the New York State Office for New Americans (ONA) Community Navigator Program, through a subcontract with the Central American Refugee Center (CARECEN). This third and final report synthesizes findings about information sharing and dissemination of resources among low-income immigrants in Long Island. The needs voiced by community stakeholders in the roundtable discussions described in the year 2 report guided the  focus of the report. This report focuses on best practices in information sharing and dissemination among immigrant serving organizations. The first part of this report provides best practices and recommendations for how immigrant-serving organizations can protect client information. The second half of the report outlines NCCP’s methods for compiling a Long Island resource list for immigrants and recommendations for future updates and secure dissemination of the resource.
