LINDEN, NJ – The Jewish Vocational Service of MetroWest (JVS) NJ is holding classes to assist legal permanent residents to prepare and apply for U.S. citizenship.

JVS has received a competitive $250,000 two-year grant from the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). The grant allows JVS and their partner, Catholic Charities of the Archdiocese of Newark, to help legal permanent residents prepare and apply for U.S. citizenship through free instruction and naturalization services. JVS has developed a curriculum that focuses on all aspects of the citizenship exam and interview, while Catholic Charities provides legal assistance in completing the N-400 Application for Naturalization.

The organization is currently halfway through its second year of the grant and is holding classes at the Linden Public Library, located at 31 East Henry Street in Linden.  Classes began on Monday, April 23 and will run until July 2 on Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. All prospective registrants must bring their Green Card in order to be considered.
