The Road to DACA

In 2012, the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) immigration policy was announced by President Barack Obama. This policy allows undocumented people who were brought to the United States as children avoid deportation action and grants them a work permit. However, DACA must be renewed every two years and renewal and application fees can be costly.

We at Make the Road Nevada ensure those eligible for DACA have all the right resources and offer free advice on all things DACA. We have also have helped DACA recipients who cannot afford renewal and application fees with monetary relief, and work to raise more funds for DACA renewals daily.

Please view our resources and donation option below. All donations are deeply appreciated by Make the Road Nevada and our members.
