DACA

Update: January 16th, 2018

USCIS has posted instructions on how it will begin accepting DACA renewal applications in response to a federal judge's decision. This only applies to individuals who already have had DACA granted in the past and not to people who would like to pursue initial applications. Here is a link to their announcement. In addition, our colleagues at Mission Asset Fund have announced that they are accepting applications for scholarships to pay for the renewal application fee at this link.

 
On September 5th, the Trump Administration announced that the DACA program will be ended on March 5th, 2018. Our partners at the National Immigration Law Center (NILC) have put together the following community advisory for community members interested in renewing their applications.
