FY 2022 Citizenship and Integration Grant Program: Innovations in Citizenship Education $250,000.00

OoC is charged with promoting instruction and training on the rights and responsibilities of citizenship. USCIS recognizes that naturalization is a key milestone in the civic integration of immigrants. Naturalization requirements, such as knowledge of English and U.S. history and government, encourage civic learning and build a strong foundation upon which immigrants can fully integrate into society. Through preparing for naturalization, immigrants gain tools to become successful citizens and meet their responsibilities as United States citizens.The goal of the Citizenship and Integration Grant Program is to expand the availability of high-quality citizenship preparation services for immigrants across the nation and to provide opportunities for immigrants to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to integrate into the fabric of American society.Educating future citizens is a core component of the Citizenship and Integration Grant program. Citizenship education provides immigrants with the skills and knowledge they need to prepare for citizenship, including instruction in English as a Second Language (ESL), U.S. history and government, and the naturalization process. Citizenship education programs have always faced challenges, such as student recruitment and retention, hiring qualified instructors, and tracking long-term program success. The COVID-19 pandemic magnified these challenges and created new hurdles to preparing immigrants for citizenship. Simultaneously, the pandemic greatly accelerated change and innovation across nearly every sector. Many citizenship education programs have developed new and innovative ways of preparing students for citizenship. Similarly, welcoming communities are experimenting with creative ways to re-engage and reconnect with both immigrant and native-born populations.Accordingly, USCIS is launching a special initiative – Innovations in Citizenship Education – designed to amplify innovation. USCIS will award innovations grants to organizations that foster creative approaches to preparing immigrants for naturalization and encouraging the civic, linguistic, and cultural integration of immigrants into their communities.

FY 2022 Citizenship and Integration Grant Program: Community and Regional Integration Network Grant (CARING) $300,000.00

OoC is charged with promoting instruction and training on the rights and responsibilities of citizenship. USCIS recognizes that naturalization is a key milestone in the civic integration of immigrants. Naturalization requirements, such as knowledge of English and U.S. history and government, encourage civic learning and build a strong foundation upon which immigrants can fully integrate into society. Through preparing for naturalization, immigrants gain tools to become successful citizens and meet their responsibilities as United States citizens.Certain immigrants, such as those who entered the United States through USCIS’ humanitarian programs, may experience unique challenges with civic, linguistic, economic, cultural, and institutional integration when resettling in the United States, which may impact their progress toward full civic integration. It is critical to provide vulnerable immigrant populations with opportunities to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to fully integrate into American society.The goal of the Community and Regional Integration Network Grant (CARING) funding opportunity is to support organizations providing extended integration services to vulnerable immigrant populations. These integration services build upon, but are not intended to replicate, resettlement services funded by the U.S. Department of State and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. Immigrants who entered the United States one of the following categories are eligible for services under this program: • refugees; • asylees; • Cuban or Haitian entrants; • victims of human trafficking or criminal activity; • abused spouses, children, or parents of U.S. citizens; and • individuals on a Special Immigrant Visa (SIV).

OoC is charged with promoting instruction and training on the rights and responsibilities of citizenship. USCIS recognizes that naturalization is a key milestone in the civic integration of immigrants. Naturalization requirements, such as knowledge of English and U.S. history and government, encourage civic learning and build a strong foundation upon which immigrants can fully integrate into society. Through preparing for naturalization, immigrants gain tools to become successful citizens and meet their responsibilities as United States citizens.The goal of the Citizenship and Integration Grant Program is to expand the availability of high-quality citizenship preparation services for immigrants across the nation and to provide opportunities for immigrants to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to integrate into the fabric of American society.Additional activities that support this goal include identifying, implementing, and sharing best practices in citizenship preparation; increasing the use of and access to technology in citizenship preparation programs; working with local libraries and museums which serve as vital resources for immigrant communities; and incorporating strategies to foster welcoming communities as part of the citizenship and civic integration process.Since it began in 2009, the Citizenship and Integration Grant Program has awarded more than $112 million through 513 competitive grants to immigrant-serving organizations in 39 states and the District of Columbia. Now in its 14th year, the program has helped more than 290,500 LPRs prepare for citizenship. The Citizenship and Integration Grant Program supports the objectives of Executive Order 14012, Restoring Faith in Our Legal Immigration Systems and Strengthening Integration and Inclusion Efforts for New Americans and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Strategic Plan for Fiscal Years 2020-2024, by promoting integration, inclusion, and citizenship. Furthermore, the goals of the Citizenship and Integration Grant Program address the DHS mission to enforce and administer our immigration laws as stated in the 2014 Quadrennial Homeland Security Review as the program provides immigrants instruction on the rights and responsibilities of U.S. citizenship and information and support on how to apply for naturalization within the authorized practice of immigration law.

FY 2022 Citizenship and Integration Grant Program: Regional Hub Program (RHP) $1,000,000.00

OoC is charged with promoting instruction and training on the rights and responsibilities of citizenship. USCIS recognizes that naturalization is a key milestone in the civic integration of immigrants. Naturalization requirements, such as knowledge of English and U.S. history and government, encourage civic learning and build a strong foundation upon which immigrants can fully integrate into society. Through preparing for naturalization, immigrants gain tools to become successful citizens and meet their responsibilities as United States citizens.The goal of the Citizenship and Integration Grant Regional Hub Program is to expand the availability of high-quality citizenship preparation services for immigrants across the nation and to provide opportunities for immigrants to gain the knowledge and skills necessary to integrate into the fabric of American society.Thanks to additional funding from Congress, USCIS can attain broader reach by revitalizing the hub and spoke model of the FY 2010-FY 2011 USCIS National Capacity Building grant program. Applicants are expected to serve as a hub for communication and information sharing on citizenship preparation among their affiliates/members and within the broader community. This enhances the traditional direct services grant programs (CINAS and CARING) through the principal applicant’s provision of ongoing capacity building and technical assistance, overall programmatic and fiscal management of all grant-funded activities, and management of sub-applicants’ program performance and outcomes. The sub-applicants must develop or expand and enhance a direct citizenship preparation program, including Citizenship Instruction Services and Naturalization Application Services, in conjunction with the principal applicant. Additional activities that support this goal include identifying, implementing, and sharing best practices in citizenship preparation; partnering and coordinating citizenship preparation efforts with state and/or local governments, particularly Offices of New Americans and/or Immigrant Affairs; increasing the use of and access to technology in citizenship preparation programs; working with local libraries and museums which serve as vital resources for immigrant communities; and incorporating strategies to foster welcoming communities as part of the citizenship and civic integration process. The Citizenship and Integration Grant Program supports the objectives of Executive Order 14012, Restoring Faith in Our Legal Immigration Systems and Strengthening Integration and Inclusion Efforts for New Americans and the U.S. Department of Homeland Security's Strategic Plan for Fiscal Years 2020-2024, by promoting integration, inclusion, and citizenship.

Cancer Prevention and Control Clinical Trials Planning Grant Program (U34 Clinical Trials Optional) $600,000.00

The purpose of this FOA is to facilitate well planned clinical trials across the cancer prevention and control spectrum aimed at improving prevention/ interception, cancer-related health behaviors, screening, early detection, healthcare delivery, management of treatment-related symptoms, supportive care, and the long-term outcomes of cancer survivors. Although the scientific literature or preliminary data may provide the rationale for conducting a clinical trial, investigators often lack critical information about the study population, accrual challenges, intervention, outcome/ endpoints, data/statistical challenges or operational risks necessary to finalize the trial protocol completely. These information gaps can result in multiple protocol changes before and after trial start-up, leading to the need for additional time and expenses that may prevent study completion. Further, the suitability and feasibility of new trial designs, which minimize infrastructure and reduce costs may need to be tested in the context of a particular intervention, at-risk group, symptom or venue. Preparatory studies may fill information gaps and address unknowns, improving trial design and knowledge of trial feasibility and thus saving NCI time and money.
