CitizenshipWorks: This might be the perfect Independent Day present yet
There’s a brand new app in town and it’s helping U.S. immigrants file for citizenship from the comfort of their smart phones. This means no more long lines and the usual stress that comes with filling out paperwork, etc. is a thing of the archaic past. Launched this week, this great new application will guide green card holders through the process of applying for American citizenship. Eventhough, the app is designed to help people who are currently living in the United States as legal permanent residents, its designers hope to help the nation’s 11 million plus undocumented immigrants once new immigration legislation becomes law.
CitizenshipWorks provides easy-to-use online tools to help low and moderate-income individuals to answer important questions about their eligibility for naturalization, to better understand the naturalization process, and to prepare for the naturalization tests. The CitizenshipWorks toolkit includes:
- 1) An interactive online interview to help individuals to understand their eligibility for naturalization;
- 2) A self-paced interactive tutorial that explains the naturalization process step-by-step;
- 3) An online tutorial to help applicants prepare for the naturalization tests; and
- 4) Links to other resources and information about citizenship and naturalization available online.
CitizenshipWorks also provides online tools and resources for nonprofits that provide free or low cost naturalization application services. If you are a nonprofit that is interested in learning more about CitizenshipWorks, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With the people in mind, CitizenshipWorks, is available in English and Spanish, helps applicants determine their eligibility to apply for citizenship, understand the application process, find legal resources, and study for the English and Civics tests. Currently, it is available on iTunes and on Google Play for free. Hopefully, it doesn’t crash.
