Ignite Technology and Innovation will play a role in helping the City of Chicago create an official ID for all citizens. The new program known as “CityKey” launched in 2018.
The City of Chicago is the first city in the nation to create a municipal ID program for ALL citizens, regardless of age or immigration status! This amazing new program will be an official form of identification that every citizen can use at their local library branch and many other participating institutions across town including pharmacies, museums etc. And it’s all FREE!
The CityKey will be a government-issued, photo identification card that the entire community can access with just one application process. This means no more worries about lost or stolen documents when you’re trying to apply for a job, open an account at a bank or even get a library card. Plus you’ll have all of your important information in one place.
CityKey is a win-win for everyone, because it also opens up access to many services and programs that the City of Chicago has to offer! For example, you can use your new card at local museums throughout our city like The Field Museum or Shedd Aquarium. Plus with the CityKey , citizens can use it to access their local public library branch or Chicago’s historic cultural centers like the Art Institute of Chicago.
The best part is CityKey will be free for anyone who lives, works, pays taxes in our city! Just imagine having all the benefits and opportunities that come with being a citizen at your fingertips when you need them most. You will never have to worry about losing your driver’s license or passport when you travel because the CityKey will be accepted at more than 100 locations across Chicago!
The goals of the program are so great, but it does need our help. The Clerk Department has started a Facebook page that gives access to all sorts of information like FAQ’S and up program. If you’d like to learn more about how CityKey works, click here .
