DREAM Center

UPDATED October 22, 2012 3:55 PM

President Obama’s June 15 announcement of a new policy that will allow certain DREAM Act eligible young people to apply for employment authorization has created hope, and confusion, among DREAMers. NYSIAF’s DREAM Center is the one place DREAMers can come to to get all the latest information about this developing program.

Check back every week for the latest on who qualifies for the new program, how to apply, and where to get help.
