Charlottesville Area Community ID Program

People in Charlottesville and Albemarle County who don’t have a government-issued ID can now get an ID card thanks to a new program sponsored by a group of local area nonprofit organizations.
The Charlottesville Area Community ID Program was launched on March 30th based on a model format used by more than 20 other communities across the country that has helped more than 20,000 people get the new ID cards.
While the non-government issued cards cannot be used to get a driver’s license or to vote, they can be used for accessing social services and health service, enrolling children in school, signing up for water and municipal services, and getting a library card.
Charlottesville and Albemarle County residents only interested in getting the card can sign up the first Saturday of each month, starting May 4th — for more information, go to the Welcoming Greater Charlottesville website at .
