USCIS Announces Citizenship and Assimilation Grant Opportunities
USCIS funding for citizenship classes available
USCIS announced today it is now accepting applications for funding opportunities under the Citizenship and Assimilation Grant Program that will provide up to $10 million in grants for citizenship preparation programs in communities across the country.
These competitive grant opportunities are for organizations that prepare lawful permanent residents for naturalization and promote civic assimilation through increased knowledge of English, U.S. history and civics.
USCIS seeks to expand availability of high-quality citizenship preparation services throughout the country with these two grant opportunities:
USCIS will take into account various program and organizational factors, including past grantee performance and whether an applicant and any sub-awardees are enrolled in E-Verify, when making final award decisions.
USCIS expects to announce award recipients in September.
To apply for one of these funding opportunities, visit grants.gov. For additional information on the Citizenship and Assimilation Grant Program for fiscal year 2018, visit uscis.gov/grants or email the USCIS Office of Citizenship at firstname.lastname@example.org.
USCIS offers a teleconference on Friday, July 27 from 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. (Eastern) to discuss the Funding Opportunity. During this teleconference, USCIS officials will provide an overview of the Citizenship and Assimilation Grant Program and answer your questions about the application requirements and process.
