About the Colorado ID Project
This special project is designed to assist low-income, disabled, homeless and elderly Coloradans seeking documentation of their identity, immigration, or citizenship status. Identity documents are a vital part of accessing healthcare, public benefits, housing, transportation, employment and to secure other essential human rights. Project activities include: representation of individual clients needing assistance in complex cases; coordination of advocacy efforts including legislative, administrative and litigation approaches; technical assistance and community education involving identification issues; and management of a supplemental document fund for individuals and nonprofits to pay needed document fees. Please note the ID Project does not assist with reinstatement of driving privileges or commercial driver’s licenses.
