New Americans Initiative


U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) is now accepting first-time requests for consideration of deferred action under Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA).

Individuals who presently have DACA may continue to file renewals.

Make an appointment to file for a new DACA Application or DACA Renewal.
