In 2021, Broward County passed a resolution proposed by Commissioners Holness and Rich authorizing the issuance of Community IDs to Broward residents. An initiative of FaithAction Network, the Broward Community ID is a document that helps residents identify themselves to law enforcement, schools, banks, health centers, city departments, and social service agencies, and participate in the cultural and business life of the county when an ID is required. Other Counties like Alachua, West Palm Beach, and Miami-Dade have approved similar programs.
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.
Many residents, including citizens, do not meet the necessary requirements to receive a driver’s license or state-issued identification, which makes proving their identity for numerous day-to-day activities a challenge. The Broward Community ID makes it easier for them to identify themselves to law enforcement, schools, health centers, city departments, and social service agencies.
*All proof of address documents must be within the past 3 months and include individuals’ name
To apply, participants must attend one of our Broward Community ID Drives taking place periodically in different Broward locations. Office appointments may be available on a limited basis due to Covid.
