Hood River County Community ID Program Begins

The Hood River County Community ID program is underway.  The Next Door is administering the program for the County, which would provide a form of local government issued identification for any County resident who wants one.  Lorena Sprager of The Next Door says the idea for the card came from findings in a 2017 community-wide needs assessment showing the need for a sense of community and belonging that stretched across demographic sectors.  The card can be used for identification purposes on a local level, but cannot be used in place of state and federal identification and licenses.  Cost is $20, and it is good for two years.  No county funds or tax dollars are being used for the program.  Information is available at nextdoorinc.org.
