Skyline Literacy is pleased to announce that it has been awarded a Citizenship and Assimilation Grant for $250,000 from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. Of the over 60 organizations nationwide that applied for the grant, Skyline was one of only 29 organizations out of the 41 awarded to receive full funding and the only recipient in Virginia.
During the next 24 months, Skyline will prepare over 250 local Lawful Permanent Residents to pass the U.S. citizenship test and interview in their journey to naturalization. Skyline’s grant partner, Church World Service Harrisonburg, will manage the application process.
Skyline Literacy would also like to thank the community for your continuing support, as donors and volunteers, which has made it possible for Skyline Literacy to help over 150 residents of Harrisonburg and Rockingham County each year to learn to read, write and speak English, as well as to become U.S. citizens.
