New York is expanding its pro bono clemency program through a partnership with a coalition of legal organizations, Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Monday announced.

The state will work with the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers as well as the Foundation for Criminal Justice and Families Against Mandatory Minimums.

The push is modeled after a federal program that has ended since President Donald Trump took office in January.

“These nationally recognized organizations have already proven successful in helping incarcerated individuals get access to the resources they need to apply for clemency, make the case for their rehabilitation and have the opportunity to contribute to and re-enter society,” Cuomo said in a statement.

“I’m proud to partner with them to expand the work of this administration and its partners and take one more step toward a more just, more fair and more compassionate New York for all.”

Cuomo in 2015 began a clemency review push in conjunction with the New York City Bar Association, the state bar association and the county lawyers association along with the Legal Aid Society.

About 1,700 potential applicants for clemency have been identified under the program.

The Obama administration in 2014 had launched a clemency program, training 4,000 volunteer lawyers that screened 36,000 federal prisoners who had sought volunteer assistance.

Since taking office in 2011, Cuomo has commuted the sentences of 10 people and extended pardons to 114 individuals.
