What are the citizenship clinics all about?

Project Citizenship is a collaborative project that helps eligible legal permanent residents overcome barriers to naturalization. Project Citizenship was formerly the Greater Boston Citizenship Initiative. GBCI was created by the Fish Family Foundation in partnership with six other immigrant, community-based, and direct service organizations to increase naturalization rates in the state. The core partners with MIRA and the Fish Foundation in this effort were the Boston Chinatown Neighborhood Center, Centro Latino, College Bound Dorchester, Irish International Immigrant Center and the Massachusetts Alliance of Portuguese Speakers, all of whom are well-established and respected pillars in their communities.
Project Citizenship partner agencies provide a range of support services for LPRs seeking citizenship, including civics instruction, application assistance, and referrals to legal services and ESOL classes. In addition, Project Citizenship offers FREE clinics providing LPRs the legal guidance, referrals and materials needed to successfully complete their application, pass their citizenship test and become fully integrated members of the United States.
