What's Happening at CUNY Citizenship Now
On January 25th, we held our first event of 2014 in the Bronx. As part of NY Citizenship in Schools, this event was held in conjunction with The Mayor's Office of Immigrant Affairs. CUNY and MOIA staff along with 47 members of our Volunteer Corps helped 115 participants. Click here to view photos of the event.
You are assisting Monica at a Citizenship Now! Application Assistance Event in March 2014. At Application Assistance you are completing the previous version of the N-400 form. Monica asks you, "Do I need to use the new version of the N-400 Form?"
What is the last day on which Monica can submit the older version of the N-400 form?
USCIS released a revised version of the N-400 form on February 4, 2014. Starting Monday, May 5, 2014 USCIS will only accept the revised version of the form. The new form looks similar to the old one, but has a few important changes. We are working on updating all of our materials and eventually our trainings to reflect the changes to the N-400 form. Take a look at the revised version of the form by clicking here (http://www.uscis.gov/sites/default/files /files/form/n-400.pdf). Stay tuned for updates from us about trainings and for information about the new version of the N-400 Form.
