Source: H.R.1617
Congressional Summary: Strengthen and Unite Communities with Civics Education and English Development Act of 2011: Allows state leadership activities grants to be used to provide technical assistance to faith and community-based organizations desiring grants under the Adult Education and Family Literacy Act:
  • to disseminate information regarding integrated English literacy, US history, and civics education programs;
  • to study the effectiveness of distance learning or self-study programs for English language learners;
  • awards grants to states for integrated English literacy, US history, and civics education programs, with each state's grant amount tied to the size and growth of their recent immigrant population.

The SUCCEED Act makes grants available to states to establish New American Councils that bring together business, faith, civic, philanthropic, non-profit and education stakeholders to create and implement immigrant integration programs.
