Grant to Fund English and Naturalization Services

Immigrant Pathways Colorado is pleased to announce that our friends at  the Littleton Immigrant Resources Center (LIRC) have  received a two-year Citizenship and Integration grant of $250,000 from the USCIS.  This is the third year the LIRC has received federal grant funds for Citizenship education and Naturalization legal services.

The grant will be used to fund two positions (the same two positions funded during the last grant cycle) and will allow LIRC to provide Citizenship education classes for various levels as well as naturalization legal services.

The City of Littleton, through the Littleton Immigrant Resources Center (LIRC), has been providing citizenship instruction for the past nine  years. LIRC serves permanent residents in the Denver metropolitan area, including immigrants from Mexico, Peru, Guatemala, Venezuela, Colombia, China, Sudan, Iran, and Iraq. LIRC was first awarded a USCIS grant in FY 2012, and also received a USCIS grant in FY 2014. With USCIS FY 2016 funding, LIRC will provide citizenship instruction to 240 permanent residents and naturalization application services to 300 permanent residents.
