About the Fund

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

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

  • DACA renewal grants — if you meet income guidelines or face financial hardship.
  • 0% interest DACA renewal loans — regardless of your income. We partner with Lower East Side People’s FCU and Brooklyn Cooperative FCU to make loans.

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

This fund serves all DACA recipients in NYC who are eligible to apply for DACA renewal. 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.
