New CLINIC Handbook Available

Wednesday, February 20, 2008


CLINIC is pleased to announce our new handbook, Strategies for Naturalizing the Most Vulnerable Applicants: A Guide to Helping Refugees and Immigrants Who Are Elderly, Disabled, Low-Income, Low-Literate, and Limited English Proficient. The handbook was created through CLINIC's project, "Technical Assistance to Promote Refugee Citizenship and Civic Participation," which is funded by the federal Office of Refugee Resettlement. The handbook discusses English exemptions, due consideration, reasonable accommodations, disability waivers, oath waivers, fee waivers, and expedited processing. It contains approximately 30 links to various references and resources, such as USCIS policy guidance and sample letters.

The handbook is available in PDF format as a free resource on our website. In addition, a limited number of free, printed copies are available (limit one per organization, please). To request a printed copy, contact Laura Burdick at with your name, organization, and mailing address.
