IV can do the job better as it has resources and expertise to help the permanent residents. Why not IV apply for this grant?

I haven't read the whole details but just thinking..

This seems to be a PERM like job posting. The beneficiary is already in place - ACORN.

"to support citizenship preparation programs for legal permanent residents."

Seems like it is for organizations that help GC holders become citizens.

Good find though.

It is best if we can find big companies to support us and contribute. They need to invest in their current immigrant employee wellbeing first rather than trying to invest for more increase on H1B numbers.

This can only be possible if members working for large companies approach their senior management.

GC Holders can apply for citizenship after 4.8 yrs they get GC right? then why this program?

or using this program we can pay citizenship application fee ?

Just trying to understand, how this will help me after 4 years.


Any insight will be helpful.
