From the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs:
On National Citizenship Day, September 17, 2013, the NYCitizenship in Schools program, a partnership between the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs (MOIA) and CUNY Citizenship Now!, entered its second year of providing free immigration information, assistance and financing options to eligible parents of students in the City’s public schools. In the 2012-13 school year, we helped close to 800 individuals complete their U.S. citizenship applications and begin the process of becoming U.S. citizens.
The next event will be on Saturday, November 23, at I.S. 218 The Salome Urena School (4600 Broadway, New York, NY 10040) for individuals eligible to naturalize.
There is a microloan opportunity with free financial counseling available to help individuals who cannot afford the $680 United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) filing fee or those who do not qualify for the USCIS fee waiver.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Zerlina Chiu at ZChiu@cityhall.nyc.gov or by phone at 212-788-9792.
