The program was originally created to provide identity cards to inmates awaiting release, as their identity is required to obtain jobs, open bank accounts, enter public buildings, and apply for benefits. As DMV Connect continues to serve inmates, the program has expanded to include public clients in nursing homes, government centers, homeless shelters, and more.
