DACA Recipients in Iowa Receive Help Paying Renewal Costs


The Ames Sanctuary Interfaith Partnership (ASIP) is soliciting applications from DACA recipients throughout Iowa who need help paying the $495 DACA Renewal/Application fee.

“Immigrants and their families have been especially hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic,” said David Hansen, co-chair of ASIP. “Their immigrant status makes them ineligible for most assistance programs.

Thousands of dollars have already been released to eligible applicants in Iowa. According to one recent recipient “This year has been tough and to be able to receive the help from ASIP was a blessing.”
