Here at Maria Jones Law Firm, we understand that the fees and finances associated with applying for citizenship can be insurmountable for some families. As a result, we’ve been in touch with Chicanos Por La Causa, a charitable organization that offers 0% interest loans to individuals applying for citizenship.
Offering Financial Assistance
Chicanos Por La Causa wants to see everyone who is eligible to apply for citizenship accomplish this goal. If a fee waiver is not an option for your N-400 application, or if a fee waiver has been denied to you, CPLC can help. Loans offered by CPLC do not go through a bank. Instead, the organization gives a $725 check directly to U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services and you pay back the loan in monthly installments of $56.67. Most people who take out this loan are able to pay it back within a year, allowing their debt to be paid off by the time they’re swearing in at their naturalization ceremonies.
To fill out an application, contact CPLC directly at (602) 535-2611 or visit their Phoenix office at 1112 E Buckeye Rd. Be sure to bring the following:
- the first 6 pages of your N-400 Application
- your AZ Driver’s License or State ID Card
- your bank account information (including a void check)
- proof of income
Once you complete and sign the application, CPLC will consider your loan eligibility.
Finding New Resources for You
At Maria Jones Law Firm, we are dedicated to helping you in whatever way we can. We are pleased to share CPLC’s offer and can help you gain access to many other resources.
