DACA Assistance Fund

Application Information

Ames Sanctuary Interfaith Partners (ASIP) seeks to help existing and new DACA (Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival) persons cover the high government application/renewal fees. The COVID-19 has especially impacted this vulnerable group making payment often impossible.

You may qualify for assistance if you,
1. Live in Iowa, and
2. Need financial support for a DACA renewal due to COVID-19 related issues

Please submit your DACA Assistance Fund application information online.

NOTE: Since new DACA applications are not currently being accepted ASIP will hold consideration on those requests until that situation is resolved.
