Cities & Counties for Citizenship (C4C) is a major national network aimed at increasing citizenship among eligible U.S. permanent residents and encouraging cities and counties across the country to invest in citizenship programs. It is chaired by the Mayors of New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles and Seattle with support from the National Partnership for New Americans (NPNA).

There are over 9 million U.S. permanent residents in America who are eligible for citizenship – 52% of whom remain low-income. Their naturalization would provide access to better paying jobs (up to an 11% increase to their personal earnings), academic scholarships, and myriad other benefits. Cities & Counties for Citizenship promotes the expansion of naturalization and financial empowerment programs nationwide, boosting economic opportunity for our immigrants and our communities.
