CCF will entertain proposals from all organizations and entities but will evaluate a request based on 1) whether the project to be funded will meet an urgent or unfilled need; 2) the financial need of the project (and in relation to an organization's budget); and 3) the community impact of the project or program including the size and longevity of the program and long term impact or potential for sustainability of the effort.

In light of the growing need to provide a wide variety of legal services to the Chelsea and Greater Boston area immigrant community, the Chelsea Collaborative today launched a Citizenship Legal Service Program. Lawyers, staff, and trained volunteers of the Collaborative, American Friends Service Committee, United Food and Commercial Workers, La Comunidad Inc., and Jobs With Justice will provide intake and application processing on Saturday, October 17th from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
According to Organizing Director Yessenia Alfaro, “this initiative by the Chelsea Collaborative in addition to providing naturalization services, aims to fully engage our community in civic participation, and to deter notary fraud.”
