DUSA Just launched a new citizenship related initiative! If you aren’t able to attend/sign up for our monthly citizenship events. Now you have the option to try our a 1 on 1 style form of assistance.
Our relationship with OIM allows us to scale benefits to a critical mass of Dominican-Americans and mainland Dominicans. I am confident that this alliance will serve as a best-practices model worthy of replication by other immigrant groups.”- Manny Matos, President, DUSA Board of Directors
The Dominicanos USA ambassadors spread the DUSAs message by engaging continuously and beneficially with their local community. Each of these ambassadors are local to the area to DUSA targeted demographic, so they are able to tap into the community in an effective manner, and are seen as a trusted source of information by that community.
who are we?
Dominicanos USA (DUSA) is a 501(c) (3) non-partisan organization founded in 2013, that is committed to the civic, social, and economic integration of Dominican-Americans into the fabric of American society. DUSA strives to ensure that every U.S. citizen is able to freely exercise their civic rights, realize their full potential, and capitalize on all opportunities the United States has to offer. Our contribution to making this vision a reality begins with our work in the DominicanAmerican community
We offer free assistance for permanent residents interested in applying for US citizenship. We include guidance on filling correctly the paperwork and test prepping most saturdays.
Our main objective is to create consciousness and awareness on our Dominican-American community about the importance of voting and registering them to vote.
Every friday our team volunteers at the Naturalization Ceremony where they help register new citizens to engage their civic right and vote. We’re looking for volunteers starting March 9th.

Since its establishment in 2013, DominicanosUSA (“DUSA”) has grounded itself in model citizenship activities focused on the civic, social and economic integration of Dominican-Americans. DUSA represents the first substantial cooperation and investment between citizens of the Dominican Republic (“DR”) and the Dominican-American diaspora- an important recognition of the vital role that a successful and prosperous diaspora represents for the Dominican Republic.
“The levels of cooperation between DUSA and diverse DR-based groups will center around unique communities of interest which will bridge cultural and generational divides common to migratory populations. Our relationship with OIM allows us to scale benefits to a critical mass of Dominican-Americans and mainland Dominicans. I am confident that this alliance will serve as a best-practices model worthy of replication by other immigrant groups.”- Manny Matos, President, DUSA Board of Directors
