CLINIC Awarded $600,000 Grant to Provide Citizenship Services
Washington, DC - The Catholic Legal Immigration Network, Inc. (CLINIC) was selected for a coveted national award from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) to strengthen citizenship programs serving Legal Permanent Residents in four cities in the United States.
The Need for Charitable Legal Immigration Services
Current capacity does not meet current demands for low-cost legal representation in immigration matters. For instance, immigrants eligible and soon-to-be eligible to naturalize as U.S. citizens have less income, education, and English language ability than immigrants who naturalized in previous decades.
