The Goshen Resident Identification (GRID) card verifies the identity and address of the person to whom it is issued. The card is issued by the Elkhart County Hope Network, (a part of the Center for Healing and Hope), to anyone who lives within Goshen's city limits and will be of help for those who can not get a driver's license or other form of identification. It can be of aid particularly to the elderly, the homeless and the undocumented.
Mayor Jeremy Stutsman signed an executive order in November 2017 as a direct order to all City offices to recognize the cards when dealing with services like utilities or parks facility rentals. The cards may not be used as an identification for voting or as a driver's license.
Below are some resources to learn more about the GRID card and information on how to get one:
