Greater Boston Citizenship Initiative

The Greater Boston Citizenship Initiative (GBCI) is a collaborative project that helps eligible legal permanent residents overcome barriers to naturalization. This initiative was created by the Fish Family Foundation and MIRA Coalition in partnership with six other immigrant, community-based, and direct service organizations to increase naturalization rates in the state.

GBCI 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, GBCI 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.
