Grand Opening Held at USCIS in Vermont
GSA and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services recently hosted a grand opening commemorating completion of the USCIS Service Center in Essex, VT. The project created 200 indirect new jobs within the community and surrounding area.
The 54,000 square foot facility, owned by Pizzagalli Properties, LLC and located at 38 River Road, Essex, VT, is a state-of-the-art facility that meets the latest security standards and GSA's sustainability criteria. The facility is expected to achieve the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Silver designation and Energy Star certification.
The center handles family-based petitions; requests for humanitarian visas, such as immigration relief for victims of crime or trafficking; and a range of benefits related to work petitions for entertainers, athletes and specialty occupations.
