County of Santa Clara DACA Emergency Fund

Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals

The County of Santa Clara has teamed up with Silicon Valley Community Foundation to set up a Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) Emergency Fund. The fund will assist DACA recipients in the County of Santa Clara who were eligible to submit DACA renewal requests by the October 5, 2017, deadline.

The County of Santa Clara encourages members of the public to make online contributions to the fund to assist DACA recipients who need financial help to afford the renewal application fees. It is estimated that 1,740 DACA recipients in Santa Clara County are eligible to submit renewal requests under the new Department of Homeland Security (DHS) guidelines.

DACA renewal application fees are $495 per individual. For some people, this is a significant financial barrier. To help DACA recipients submit their renewal requests on time, please consider making a contribution to fully or partly cover the $495 renewal application fees.

SVCF’s nonprofit partners that work to support the legal rights of immigrants will assist DACA recipients in submitting their renewal applications.
Thank you for your support and generous contribution to help DACA recipients. For more information on how to support DACA recipients, please contact the Office of Supervisor Dave Cortese at 408.299.5030 or dave.cortese@bos.sccgov.org.
