Editor's note: Correction below fixes information on the credit union microloans.
Immigration attorneys, paralegals and interpreters will offer free citizenship application assistance to legal permanent residents.
The event is one of four Citizenship Day clinics in Washington state.
Services will be provided from 10 am. to 3 p.m. Saturday at Columbia Basin College, 2600 N. 20th Ave., Pasco.
Participants will receive assistance with N-400 forms, application review and information about the naturalization process.
Citizenship loans will be available through Gesa Credit Union. The loan is for up to $1000, and must be repaid within a year; $675 of the loan is made out to the USCIS, with the remaining portion to be used by the member for their expenses incurred during the citizenship process. Interested individuals who want more information can call or visit any Gesa branch to apply.
If qualified applicants through Express Credit Union pay back the $680 citizenship loan over nine months, plus a 15 percent flat interest rate, they would get $150 placed in a free savings account at the end, essentially making money off of the exchange.
