What is public charge?

Immigration officials use a "public charge test" to decide if a person can enter the U.S. or get a green card. Officials look at a person's income, employment, health, education, skills, and family situation. They can see whether a sponsor signed a contract, called “affidavit of support” promising to support the person. Officials can also look at whether a person has used specific benefit programs.

Note: The public charge test does not apply to green card holders who are applying for U.S. citizenship.

Commission on Immigrant Rights and Citizenship (CIRC) 

The Commission on Immigrant Rights and Citizenship (CIRC) was formed over the summer of 2016 to address the concerns of Cambridge’s immigrant communities, particularly with regard to rights and citizenship.

It will be a goal of this committee to get that message of welcome out, through collaboration with organizations that already provide services and outreach to our immigrant population. By providing information about available services and resources for new immigrants, we can support the efforts of other service providers and reaffirm Cambridge’s commitment to diversity and immigrant welcome.
