DACA

Help for current DACA recipients. 

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 July 16, 2021, a federal judge ruled that the DACA program is unlawful. This means that first-time applications will not be granted at this time. However, 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.

Who can help

The organizations below help DACA recipients apply for renewals. Consultations are generally low-cost or free and the application cost may be covered for San Franciscans.

 

School transcripts are one way to prove residency for your DACA application. Current and former San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) students can request their transcripts for free by emailing: transcripts@sfusd.edu
