On April 1, U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) began accepting applications for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2014 Citizenship and Integration Grant Program, a competitive grant opportunity for public or non-profit organizations which promotes immigrant civic integration and prepares permanent residents for citizenship.
