DACA + FHA = Dream Home
HUD and FHA agreed to guarantee home loans for DACA recipients with work permits in 2021.
DACA Kids Can Now Use FHA to Buy A New Home
Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) was created in 2012 by President Obama to protect eligible immigrant youth, who came to the United States when they were children, from deportation.
DACA gives young undocumented immigrants:
1) protection from deportation, and
2) a work permit, renewable every two years.

The Federal Housing Administration offers Federally guaranteed home loans with as little as 3.5% down payment.
The FHA has previously said it would not back mortgages for DACA applicants.
Until this year!
Just prior to leaving their posts to make way for the new administration, top Department of Housing and Urban Development officials reversed the agency’s previous policy which stated, “Dreamers are not eligible borrowers".
In one of President Trump’s last acts, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) declared that the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) will begin backing mortgages for immigrants under the DACA program effective January 19, 2021.
HUD said DACA recipients who are legally permitted to work in the U.S. are eligible to apply for mortgages backed by the FHA.
