The City of Kentwood is an acceptance facility for US Passports. You do not need to be a resident of Kentwood to take advantage of our passport services.
The U.S. Department of State suspended passport processing in March, and began limited processing of passports beginning June 11. They recommend customers wait to submit new or renewal applications, as they will not be processed for several months. Expedited processing is not available.
