Central Oregon's Latino Community Association has announced a funding opportunity for recipients of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, commonly known as DACA. The program allows children of undocumented migrants who entered the U.S. before age 16 to obtain a work permit and other legal status.
People who already have DACA and a work permit and who are in need of help paying to renew their status can apply for funds through LCA, which announced the opportunity Tuesday. The funds come courtesy of the MRG Foundation, a member of the Oregon Immigrant & Refugee Funders Collaborative, a release from LCA stated Tuesday. Funds are limited and there is an income eligibility requirement. LCA will offer up to $495 per applicant for the first eight eligible applicants who apply.For more info on the campaign, look here.
