Journey to Citizenship Loans

ERICA offers interest-free Journey to Citizenship loans for refugees, asylees, asylum seekers and other humanitarian immigrants to help pay government, legal, medical exam and other fees related to asylum petitions, adjustment of status, work authorization, and naturalization. The money comes from a growing circle of giving through which repayment by borrowers allows even more new loans to be issued. The maximum loan is $1000.
