about project citizenship

Project Citizenship is New England’s largest citizenship provider. With a team of five permanent staff members, and over 750 pro bono volunteers, Project Citizenship serves more than 1,600 immigrants each year on their paths to citizenship. We have a 95% success rate because of the efficiency and accuracy of our process. Only 10% of the eligible 300,000 permanent residents in Massachusetts apply for citizenship because of the many obstacles: $725 filing fee, backlogs, increased scrutiny and growing wait times. Project Citizenship works to overcome these obstacles
with free legal services. A 2017 Social Innovation Forum innovator, Project Citizenship provides free legal services with its unique pro bono model, utilizing volunteers from Boston’s top law firms and law schools. And it is also supported by a 14-member Board of Directors. With a current annual budget of $740,000, in just four short years Project Citizenship has already helped more than 5,300 immigrants to apply for citizenship. It hopes to increase its budget to $1.2M over the next four years, and to have the capacity to help over 6,000 more immigrants before 2022. Visit for more.
