This overview looks at applying for the DACA program as an economic investment. It provides important information for service providers and DACA applicants to use when considering whether applying for DACA is worth the cost--and it almost always is. DACA allows certain undocumented immigrants who came to the United States before their 16th birthday and before June 2007 to receive a renewable 2-year work permit and exemption from deportation.
