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.

Boston Prepared for President Obama's Executive Actions on Immigration

On Thursday, President Obama announced that he is taking executive action to reform the immigration system. The Mayor's Office of New Bostonians is working with community partners to provide accurate information and access to services to constituents who may benefit from these changes in the immigration system.

The Office of New Bostonians will be hosting an information session for the public Tuesday, November 25th, 4:30-6:30 PM at Boston City Hall, Room 801 (8th Floor). Please use the 1st Floor Congress St. Entrance (facing Faneuil Hall) if you arrive after 5:30PM. Please call (617) 635-2980 if an interpreter is needed for a language other than Spanish.

At this time, no applications are available for the new forms of relief. Please be careful to avoid scams. Our office will work with community organizations to ensure that application assistance will occur for little or no cost once the applications are available.
