Help now is available for people who want to become United States citizens but don't have the money to do so.

U.S. Representative Luis Gutierrez was in Chicago's Lower West Side neighborhood Saturday to announce the launch of a new service.

Second Federal Credit Union will offer loans for U.S. citizenship application fees, which are nearly $700.

It is the only financial institution in Illinois to offer this type of service.
