Posted on 12/05/2013
The preliminary application process for the Networks for Integrating New Americans project has begun. This is a new, 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.
The Webinar, held Dec. 3, 2013, will be archived and posted on the World Education Web site along with FAQs submitted during the Webinar. On this page you will be able to find Networks' Theoretical Framework and Call for Applications.
