Pennsylvanians experiencing homelessness are now able to obtain a free initial photo ID or renewal of a photo ID. PennDOT and the Pennsylvania Department of Human Services (DHS) say the change is a result of Act 131 of 2020. To obtain an ID at no cost, individuals experiencing homelessness must apply in person at a PennDOT Driver License Center, and must meet identification and other requirements. The applicant must inform staff if they are applying for, or renewing their existing Pennsylvania photo ID and are requesting a free ID due to their status.
