The United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) has renewed a grant that will fund citizenship classes at the Community College of Aurora through September 2021.
The citizenship classes prepare area residents for the interview with USCIS. The Community College of Aurora provides citizenship classes in partnership with Lutheran Social Services of Colorado, which provides naturalization services, including a lawyer that helps students fill out the citizenship application and answer legal questions.
The $210,033 grant runs from October 1 through September 30, 2021. This is the fourth consecutive time CCA has received this two-year grant from the federal government.
Through the grant, CCA has programmed citizenship classes that have resulted in about 30 students becoming United States citizens in the past six months.
