USCIS Citizenship Grant Program now taking proposals
deadline May 22nd
USCIS has just announced this year's Citizenship & Integration Grant Program. The program funds organizations that offer both citizenship instruction and naturalization application services. The citizenship instruction must test English proficiency and offer minimal hours and weeks of classes. The naturalization application services must include eligibility screening, application assistance, and ongoing case management. In addition, an organization must have at least one year experience within the past five years, offering instruction and legal services. The funding is for two years, with a maximum grant award of $125,000 per year. Programs that were awarded funding last year are not eligible to apply this year. The online application is due May 22, 2013.
