Immigrant Integration

The Fund has supported the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs since its inception by supporting a variety of outreach programs and services. For example, Cities for Citizenship (C4C) is a national program co-chaired by Mayor Garcetti and the Mayors of New York City and Chicago that promotes financial education and literacy to individuals moving towards a path to citizenship.   Pulling in private resources from generous funders such as Citi Community Development, the Mayor’s Fund for Los Angeles provided grants through the C4C program to immigration-focused nonprofits to provide financial literacy training for 3,000 individuals going through the citizenship process.
