We're now the Mayor's Office for Immigrant Advancement!

We might have changed our name, but our staff and contact information remains the same. Stay tuned for more information when we launch the new City of Boston website.

Mayor's Office of New Bostonians


Welcome, bienvenidos, 欢迎, chào mừng, benvindos, Добро пожаловать, byenveni, benvenuto, bienvenue!

The purpose of the Mayor’s Office of New Bostonians (MONB) is to strengthen the ability of diverse cultural and linguistic communities to play an active role in the economic, civic, social and cultural life in the city of Boston. MONB acts as a catalyst for providing opportunity, access and equality for immigrants, and highlights the contributions and the essential role that immigrants have played and continue to play in making Boston the world class city that it is.

President Obama's Executive Actions on Immigration


At this time, NO APPLICATIONS ARE AVAILABLE for the NEW forms of relief.

A federal judge has issued a temporary order delaying President Obama's executive actions on immigration. Expanded "DACA" applications and "DAPA" applications will NOT be accepted until further notice. "DACA" applications and renewals under the 2012 guidelines will continue to be accepted (www.uscis.gov/daca).

Please be careful to avoid scams. Only licensed attorneys or BIA accredited representatives can give immigration legal advice.

Application assistance clinics will be held in Boston for little or no cost once the applications are available.

For more information, call (10AM-3PM, Monday-Friday):
