Bay Area DACA Legal Service Providers

IIBA was asked to lead the Bay Area DACA Collaborative, to provide timely response to the needs of over 60,000 potentially DACA-eligible youth living in Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, Santa Cruz, Solano and Sonoma counties. The Immigrant Legal Resource Center and Educators for Fair Consideration joined IIBA to form the steering committee for this collaborative.

Goals

  • Guide potential DACA beneficiaries through the screening and application process, prioritizing efforts to prevent exposure to fraudulent services.
  • Build a base of volunteer support for DACA applicants, particularly utilizing the strength and capabilities of pro-bono attorneys, DREAMers, and community members to assist in efforts.
  • Raise awareness about DACA in the community (particularly among potential applicants), drawing upon the leadership of DREAMers and those at the grassroots.
  • Launch and promote a revolving loan fund to help low-income DACA applicants afford the $465 application fee.

Accomplishments

Funding from the Bay Area DACA Collaborative has enabled 27 immigration legal service providers and other immigrant serving organizations to educate 25,000 immigrants, allies and stakeholders about DACA through community presentations, workshops and educational events, and an additional 150,000 were informed through online resources and outreach materials. Funding also enabled participating immigration legal service providers to screen 10,000 immigrant youth for DACA eligibility as well as for other forms of immigration relief, and complete DACA applications for 5,000 individuals found eligible to apply. Immigration legal service providers throughout the Bay Area strengthened their county-wide collaborative efforts by jointly organizing group processing workshops and informational presentations, and by creating and implementing effective referral mechanisms.
