Citizenship Extravaganza starts in February at CUNY Citizenship Now!

Citizenship is our name! In commemoration of our 24th anniversary, we will hold a series of events to help you apply for citizenship this February and March. Through this effort, we want to address the most common misconceptions and obstacles that permanent residents face when applying for citizenship.


Upcoming activities:

  • Facebook Live events about overcoming financial obstacles in applying for citizenship (February 24 in English, March 24, Spanish)
  • Online assistance with your application (by appointment). Priority will be given to citizenship application appointments in February and March.
  • Social media campaign about the myths and facts about applying for citizenship.


Don't wait to apply for citizenship any longer!
