The Arizona Child Abuse Prevention & Advocacy License Plate Grant Program

Child abuse prevention specialty license plates have been available for purchase by the public since November 1999. The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) issues special vehicle license plates for various causes and organizations that include collegiate, environmental, and veteran plates, according to A.R.S. § 28-2351. The revenue generated from the sale of the vehicle license plates will be used, in part, to support child abuse and neglect primary prevention efforts and support child and family advocacy centers. Plates are sold for $25 each ($8 is a special plate administration fee, and $17 is a tax-deductible annual donation). Match funds also supplemented these funds. The monies in the fund are exempt from the provisions of A.R.S. § 35-190 relating to the lapsing of appropriations.

The GOYFF began administering this grant in May 2019, when the Arizona Legislature passed SB1533 and former Governor Doug Ducey signed it. Approximately $100,000 in grant funding has been awarded to four Arizona organizations to support programs that strengthen families through primary prevention services and support child abuse and neglect victims and their families through Child and Family Advocacy Centers. With the maximum annual award of $25,000 per grantee, the grant is renewable for three years. 

If you have questions about this program or would like to be connected to grantees currently providing prevention and educational programming in your community, please email your name, contact information, location, and requested programming/training to Amy Peep, Program Administrator.
