National Board of Respiratory Care
The National Board for Respiratory Care, Inc. (NBRC) is a voluntary health certifying board which was created in 1960 to evaluate the professional competence of respiratory therapists. A group of Chicago physicians and therapists recognized the need to formalize the training and registration of practitioners involved in the care and support of patients with respiratory disorders.
Through the guidance of these individuals, the American Registry of Inhalation Therapists (ARIT) was incorporated as a not-for-profit corporation in the state of Illinois. This organization has responded to the growth of the profession through the years and has evolved as the current NBRC. For more information, click here.

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services
U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is the government agency that oversees lawful immigration to the United States. USCIS is funded almost completely by the fees paid by individuals and organizations for immigration and naturalization services.
The agency receives very little taxpayer money. In 1988, Congress created the Immigration Examinations Fee Account, establishing the authority to recover the full cost of immigration benefit processing. This account represents approximately 95 percent of USCIS’ fiscal year 2016 total budget authority. The remaining authority comes from other fee accounts and annual appropriations by Congress for the E-Verify program. For more information, click here.
