The CIIC was established in 1996 to promote the welfare of Irish immigrants in the US at a national level.The mission of the CIIC is to represent immigrant organizations throughout the United States who are committed to providing services to Irish immigrants.

CIIC member organizations are located in California, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, New York, Philadelphia, Washington and Wisconsin.

Each center provides their own unique array of services, outreach and assistance to immigrants.
