Florida Autism License Plate Sales Funds Available for Non-Profit Grants

Each year, the Florida Support Autism Programs Specialty License Plate generates funds that support nonprofit organizations providing direct services for individuals with autism and related disabilities in Florida. The Autism License Plate Fund and the Autism Services Grant Council are administered by Arc Broward, a nationally accredited, Florida, non-profit, Section 501(c)(3) exempt organization.
In 2020, over $113,365 in grants to 25 Florida-based nonprofit organizations was awarded, bringing to life projects such as Autism Pensacola’s specialized summer camp; Providing Autism Links & Support (PALS) in Orange, Seminole and Osceola Counties; Sarasota Manatee Association for Riding Therapy Inc.; among many other great programs.
“Every Autism license plate we put on the road is a rolling billboard reminding people that individuals with autism are a meaningful part of the community,” says Dennis Haas, Chair of the Autism Services Grants Council in Florida. “It is amazing to see that even a small investment in a specialty license plate helps to fund the good work of these organizations throughout the state.”
All non-profit organizations with a current Internal Revenue Service designation as a 501(c)(3) exempt organization, and a current State of Florida Charitable Solicitation Registration number that are providing services to individuals with autism and related disabilities in Florida are eligible to apply. Grant applications are available at autismlicenseplate.com/grant-application.
For those wanting to purchase an Autism license plate, they are available for purchase at Local, County and private Motor Vehicle Plate Renewal Offices throughout the state and online.
