DACA Renewal Clinics

Clinics take place at law firms located in the Chicago Loop. In order to be fully confirmed and receive the location of the clinic, participants must follow all of the instructions when registering.

Participants receive full legal representation throughout the life of their DACA renewal case at no cost; however, they must provide the government filing fee of $495.

DACA recipients who cannot provide the filing fee may be eligible for grants and scholarships from Protection for All Movement DACA Renewal Funds Assistance
