I am currently in the process of waiting on my citizenship interview. I did biometrics last Nov and just waiting on that interview date. However, I am in a financial bind right now, I am working FT, I pay my taxes, and I go to college FT. I have a daughter who is American. I am thinking of applying for rent assistance program, will it affect my citizenship and more importantly will it affect when I am ready to file for my mother. I don't want food stamps or to go on welfare, I love being independent, I just need help in paying my rent till I get a better paying job when I graduate. I have applied to several housing lotteries, but I never qualify because my income doesn't meet the guidelines. I'd appreciate a response.
