All Mercer County residents are eligible for this photo ID card, which provides the cardholder’s personal identifying information, medical risk factors, and emergency contact information. This privately issued card, sponsored by the One Community Coalition, may be used at social service agencies, schools, clinics, parks, post offices, and to access basic municipal or health services and as a form of identification by check cashing companies, banks, retail stores or other establishments. The Latin American Legal Defense & Education Fund, a nonprofit advocacy group, issues the card. There is a $15 cost ($10 for youth under 21 and seniors over 65) per card to cover expenses.
