The Hispanic Immigrant Integration Project (HIIP)
In partnership with Hispanic Federation, LULAC National, LULAC Councils, and allies provide various immigration services to community members through the Hispanic Immigrant Integration Program (HIIP). Grant recipients must implement a ten-month program that encompasses all of the following services:
- General outreach/education;
- ESL and/or American history/civic classes;
- Naturalization application assistance;
- Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival application assistance;
- Family-based petition application assistance.
LULAC’s goal is to provide immigrant integration services to immigrants who have limited access to support systems and services.
Throughout our country's history, immigrants have contributed immensely to our culture, our economy, our defense and our national pride. Almost all citizens of the United States are immigrants or the descendants of immigrants and each new generation of immigrants has reinvigorated our nation with the values and work ethic that has made America great. Our common experience has demonstrated that immigration is good for America, whether your ancestors arrived before the Declaration of Independence or just a generation ago. Through a generous grant from the Walmart Foundation, LULAC in partnership with the Hispanic Federation (HF) has launched the Hispanic Immigrant Integration Project (HIIP). HIIP seeks to increase the availability of immigrant integration assistance programs available to low-income, immigrant, Spanish-dominant and otherwise underserved Latinos living in Arkansas, California, Illinois, and Texas.
More information will become available after December 14th regarding the 2015 program.
