Many residents, including citizens, do not meet the requirements to receive a state-issued identification, which makes proving their identity for day-to-day activities a challenge. The Broward Community ID Card helps residents identify themselves to law enforcement, schools, banks, health centers, city departments, and social service agencies.
Any resident of Broward County can apply for a Community ID card. This ID is especially useful to formerly incarcerated persons, foster youth, transgender persons, the homeless, new immigrants, refugees, or anyone who might face difficulties obtaining a state-issued ID. Immigration status will not be asked.
To apply, attend one of our ID Drive Events taking place periodically in different Broward locations, or make an office appointment.Register for an ID drive event Make an office appointment
*Broward County authorized the issuance of Community IDs to Broward residents in 2021. Other Counties like West Palm Beach and Miami-Dade have approved similar programs. We have earned endorsements from different law enforcement agencies, local cities, and non-profit organizations. With their help and that of our amazing volunteers we provide office appointments and monthly community ID Drives.
