An Arizona Department of Transportation Motor Vehicle Division office opened on the Human Services Campus near downtown Phoenix issued state IDs to 780 people in August, its first full month of operations.
MVD’s partnership with the Homeless ID Project enables clients experiencing instability or homelessness to get replacement driver licenses or state IDs without having to find transportation several miles to the nearest MVD office. State-issued IDs are essential for obtaining services and employment.
Staffed 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Monday through Friday by an MVD representative, this office can be converted to a TeleMVD office in which customers can conduct many transactions with representatives located elsewhere.
The MVD presence complements the efforts of the Homeless ID Project, which during 2022 provided 12,143 documents, including 8,000 state-issued IDs and 4,000 replacement copies of birth certificates from all 50 states, on the Human Services Campus and in outreach programs across Maricopa and Pima counties.
