About the Fund

New Economy Project has operated the NYC DREAMer Fund since 2012, making 0% interest loans to cover DACA application fees for hundreds of New Yorkers. In September 2017, New Economy Project expanded the fund to make rapid-response grants.

New Economy Project partners with dozens of nonprofit organizations that can help you prepare your DACA application and immediately apply for our:

  • Grants — if you face financial hardship, based on income guidelines.
  • 0% interest loans. We partner with Lower East Side People’s FCU and Brooklyn Cooperative FCU to provide loans to eligible applicants.

For more info, please email us or call 212-680-5100.

New Economy Project will operate the program as long as we have sufficient funds to grant and/or lend. We will immediately post notice on our website of any changes.
