About 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 purpose of this program is to provide financial assistance, to support child abuse and neglect prevention programs and support child and family advocacy centers in Arizona.

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.
