Citizenship and Integration Program by Immigration Attorney in Fresno

Fiscal year 2010 Citizenship and Integration Grant Program
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced today the availability of

two different grants designed to help prepare lawful permanent residents (LPRs) for

citizenship and advance integration in the United States. This year’s program will

make nearly $7 million available for citizenship education in communities across the


Citizenship and Integration Direct Services Grant Program
This funding opportunity will focus on local programs currently promoting the rights

and responsibilities of citizenship through citizenship preparation programs for LPRs.

Proposed activities must include a citizenship education component consisting of

citizenship or civics-focused ESL instruction and citizenship instruction (U.S. history

and government) to prepare LPRs for the civics, and English reading, writing and

speaking components of the naturalization test.

In addition to the mandatory education component, grant funds may be used to

provide naturalization application preparation assistance, including legal services

(within the scope of authorized practice of immigration law) and case management

services to support the naturalization application and interview process. Grants will

be awarded to organizations proposing citizenship education services only, as well as

to organizations proposing both citizenship education services and naturalization

application preparation assistance. For More Information, Please Contact:
