Background
With nearly one million youth eligible for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), promising young people can now apply for a program that offers them protection from deportation and access to work permit. But, most of them cannot afford the $495 application fee. To help the half of rest of the one million eligible DACA, MAOF provides the Lending Circles for Dreamers program. For eligible citizenship applicants, the Lending Circles Program helps pre-qualify clients with the cost of $725 dollars for the citizenship application fee.

How it works
Lending Circles for Dreamers and Citizenship provides a zero-interest, zero-fee loan to help participants pay the $495 application fee for DACA and $725 for Citizenship application fee. Participants build credit by making low monthly payments of $49.50 for DACA and $79.50 for Citizenship for 10 months. As soon as participants are ready to apply for DACA or Citizenship, we give them a check issued to the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.
Building a Brighter Future
When you are eligible for DACA, you receive a work permit and become eligible for a Social Security number. You will have protection from deportation. With Lending Circles for Dreamers, you get the chance to improve your credit score and financial savviness to help build a brighter future.
When you become Citizen you receive other privileges such as voting, and other qualifying and convenient government services.
