Atchison Globe on NewsPressNow

OVERLAND PARK— The Department of Homeland Security awarded approximately $10 million in grants to 40 organizations in 25 states to help prepare lawful permanent residents for naturalization.

Of the $10 million, a grant of $250,000 has been awarded to Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas. With this grant, Catholic Charities of Northeast Kansas will offer Citizenship Preparation Programming to serve 280 individuals through free intensive citizenship preparation classes and provide citizenship application assistance and one-on-one naturalization interview preparation through La Luz Immigration Clinic.

The fiscal year (FY) 2021 grants, which run through September 2023, provide funding to organizations that prepare LPRs for naturalization and promote civic integration through increased knowledge of English, U.S. history, and civics. USCIS received support from Congress through appropriations to make these funding opportunities available to communities.
