Want us to help you with your citizenship application? We are not in the office every day, but MIRA is still providing free application assistance by phone, video conferencing and email, and in the office by appointment. To get started, call 617-350-5480, ext. 200 and leave a message (we will call you back!). You can also email citizenship@miracoalition.org.

Citizenship Fee Update (2024): The citizenship application fee will change effective April 1, 2024. Applicants with a household income at or below 150% of the Federal Poverty Level, or who are receiving a income-tested public benefits do not pay an application fee. Applicants with household incomes between 150% and 400% of the Federal Poverty Level will be eligible for a reduced fee of $380. Applicants not eligible for a reduced fee or fee waiver will be charged $710 when submitting the application online, or $760 when submitting the application by mail.

Here’s what you can expect:

We’ll guide you through the naturalization form, step by step, including a waiver for the federal fees if you qualify. We will also help you gather any documents you will need.

These are the steps to help you apply for citizenship:

  1. A team member will call you and make sure you can apply.
  2. You will be scheduled for an application assistance appointment.
  3. Another team member will review the final application with you to make sure the application is correct.

We will keep a copy of your documents in our office, and receive U.S. Citizenship & Immigration Services (USCIS) notices about your citizenship appointments so we can inform you when you are scheduled for an appointment with immigration. Learn more about what to expect after your application is submitted!

If you have any additional questions, please contact citizenship@miracoalition.org.

We look forward to assisting you!


We are grateful to our partners the Ali Family Fund for Naturalization, and the state Citizenship for New Americans Program, for making this work possible!
