About the Arizona Child Abuse Prevention & Advocacy License Plate Grant Program
The funds awarded under this Request for Grant Application (RFGA) are State of Arizona funds. Child abuse prevention specialty license plates have been available for purchase by the public since November 1999. The purpose of this program is to provide financial assistance, to support child abuse and neglect primary prevention programs, and support child and family advocacy centers in Arizona to provide support to victims of child abuse and neglect. Programs shall be trauma-informed, family-centered, strengths-based, and evidence-based or evidence-informed. The GOYFF encourages collaboration with community partnerships and the Arizona Department of Child Safety.
The Arizona Department of Transportation (ADOT) issues special vehicle license plates for a variety of causes and organizations that also include collegiate, environmental, veteran plates pursuant 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). These funds were also supplemented by match funds. The monies in the fund are exempt from the provisions of A.R.S. § 35-190, relating to lapsing of appropriations. Individuals can purchase their speciality license plate in support of these programs by going to azmvdnow.gov/plates.
