These two funding opportunities aim to prepare permanent residents for naturalization and promote civic integration through increased knowledge of English, U.S. history and civics. The first opportunity is for public or nonprofit organizations that prepare permanent residents for citizenship by offering both citizenship instruction and naturalization application services.
The second funding opportunity supports nonprofit organizations in their efforts to establish new citizenship instruction programs or to expand the quality and reach of existing citizenship instruction programs. As part of this effort, USCIS will provide targeted training to key grant program staff during the first quarter of the grant, and then follow up with on-site observation and specialized technical assistance during the second quarter of the funding period. Verifiable experience in the provision of English as a Second Language (ESL) programming is required to qualify for this funding opportunity. Applicants are required to use existing expertise in ESL instruction to provide citizenship instruction.
