UPDATE: Preliminary applications are due December 20! Here is a list of frequently asked questions and answers about the process and eligibility criteria.
The preliminary application process for the Networks for Integrating New Americans project has begun! This is a national initiative to advance immigrant integration through technical assistance. Learn more in the project’s fact sheet.
The project will select up to five forward-thinking community networks (also coalitions or initiatives) to receive technical assistance to address the linguistic, civic, and economic needs of immigrant adults. Organizational networks are key to this project because when organizations in both immigrant and receiving communities collaborate on immigrant integration, both communities contribute unique strengths and better address common needs.
Potential applicants are strongly encouraged to participate in an informational pre-application webinar on Tuesday, Dec. 3 from 2:30-4 p.m. Eastern Time. Register here.
The NINA application process has three stages:
- A preliminary application that screens for eligibility;
- A full application; and
- Interviews with the finalists.
Preliminary applications are due Dec. 20, 2013 via electronic submission.
