Overview

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) offers an estimated 2.3 million immigrants across the United States access to the American Dream. The program allows qualifying Dreamers—immigrants who have lived in the U.S. since they were children but lack legal status—to earn temporary protection from deportation and a work permit. One study found that three out of five successful applicants earned a new job, half opened their first bank account, and a third obtained their first credit cards after receiving DACA.

DACA offers philanthropy the chance to play a transformative role in helping several million youth and young adults expand their contributions to society and realize their full potential. To assist with implementation efforts, GCIR launched Delivering on the Dream, an initiative that coordinates national, state, and local funding—including via funder collaboratives—to maximize the number of individuals who ultimately benefit from this critical form of immigration relief.
