How to Apply for a USCIS Citizenship and Integration Grant

Wednesday, April 10, 2024 2 - 3 p.m. Eastern

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services invites you to participate in a webinar on Wednesday, April 10, from 2 - 3 p.m. Eastern, to discuss the Citizenship and Integration Grant Program.

Citizenship and Integration Grants provide funding to organizations that prepare immigrants for naturalization and promote civic integration through increased knowledge of English, U.S. history, and civics. 

During this session, USCIS will provide a general overview of the Citizenship and Integration Grant Program and answer your questions about the application requirements and process. 

Each fiscal year, USCIS announces Notices of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) for the Citizenship and Integration Grant Program and awards these grants through a competitive application process.

To apply for these funding opportunities, eligible applicants must visit grants.gov. All applicants must also have a Unique Entity ID (UEI) number, a valid employer identification number (EIN) number, and an updated System for Award Management (SAM.gov) account before applying.

Join us to learn more about steps organizations can take now to prepare for the FY 2024 grant application process. We will only discuss the general application process and requirements during this event. We will host an additional engagement in the coming months to discuss the specific details of the FY 2024 NOFOs.
