The Enrollment Process

When you visit an enrollment center, you will begin the electronic application process and asked to submit documents proving identity and residency. Your photo will be taken for use on your card. All of your original documents will be returned to you immediately once the enrollment process is complete. Your Hartford City ID card will be mailed to the address listed on your application in 10-14 business days. If you do not have an address or have security concerns about having your card mailed to your home address, you can inform the application intake staff that you wish to pick up your card at the Office of Community Engagement, Hartford City Hall, which will be available approximately 15 business days later.
