If your DACA work permit expires before March 5, 2018, you should renew your DACA by October 5, 2017.

Cuc Vu, Director, Office of Immigrant and Refugee Affairs

On September 5, 2017, the Trump Administration announced an end to the DACA program. However, DACA recipients whose work permit expires between September 5, 2017 and March 5, 2018 are eligible to apply for a two-year renewal. If you are eligible, we recommend you renew ASAP!

The deadline for renewals is October 5, 2017, and FREE legal assistance is available to help with renewals.

Please help us get the following information out to DACA youth and families.

  1. Your DACA is valid until its expiration date.
  2. If your DACA work permit is due to expire between September 5, 2017 and March 5, 2018, you should apply for a renewal.
  3. Your application must be received by the Department of Homeland Security by October 5, 2017. We recommend you get legal assistance (see below).
  4. You can get FREE help with your DACA renewal at the following workshops and clinics:
