FY 2011 Citizenship and Integration Grant Program

1. Is there a mandatory Letter of Intent this year?

No, USCIS will not collect Letters of Intent for any of the FY 2011 funding opportunities.

2. Is there a format for the MOU (Memorandum of Understanding)?

There is no required format. The MOU must be signed by all parties. The MOU should clearly describe the scope of work to be performed, roles, responsibilities, and agreed upon activities, including remuneration, and other terms and conditions that structure or define the relationship (e.g., in-kind services, dollars, staff, space, equipment, etc.).

3. Should our organization submit an MOU for our volunteers?

The MOU is required for any formal agreement between the applicant and another organization. MOUs are not required for individual volunteers.
