What to do

See if you are eligible

Schedule an appointment with one of the organizations below to renew DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals).

DACA was created in 2012 to give some undocumented immigrants who came to the U.S. as children temporary protection from deportation and access to a work permit. 

On September 13, 2023, a federal judge ruled that DACA is unlawful, but did not end the program. The decision is expected to be appealed and will likely reach the U.S. Supreme Court.

This decision means there are no changes for DACA recipients at this time. Current DACA recipients will keep their protections and work permits, and DACA renewals will continue. Anyone who currently has DACA or who has had DACA in the past year is still eligible to renew. However, no first-time applications are being granted at this time.
