Your chance to weigh in on fee increase
Hello fellow citizenship educators:
USCIS is now taking comments on the proposed fee increase for citizenship applications. NALEO has put together a portal that makes it easy for you to send comments directly to USCIS:
Take Action Now: Submit Your Comment on USCIS’ Proposed Naturalization Fee Increases! You can also find FAQ’s about the fee increase at this link. Please note that you will be asked to select either "elected or appointed official" or "community or civic leader" in order to see a sample letter that you can tailor to your own experience. I realize that "community or civic leader" is not the way we generally think of ourselves, but I contacted NALEO with this question directly and their response was: "we definitely think of educators as community and civic leaders, so we very much welcome their input on the fees."
It’s important you let USCIS know about your position on its proposal - The deadline to submit comments is March 6, 2023.
