Through preparing for naturalization, immigrants will gain the tools to become successful citizens and meet their responsibilities as United States citizens.The goal of the Citizenship and Assimilation Grant Program is to expand the availability of high-quality citizenship preparation services for lawful permanent residents across the nation and to provide opportunities for lawful permanent residents to gain the knowledge and training necessary to assimilate into the fabric of American society.Additional activities that support this goal include developing, identifying, 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 assimilation process.Furthermore, the goals of the Citizenship and Assimilation 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 lawful permanent residents instruction on the rights and responsibility of U. S. citizenship and information and support on how to apply for naturalization within the authorized practice of immigration law.
