NEW LICENSE PLATE CREATED TO HELP AUTISM SERVICES AND RESEARCH
Illinois Department of Human Services recently announced that Illinois residents are now able to help fund Autism research and raise public awareness by purchasing official state autism awareness license plates. A portion of the proceeds, from the license plates, will be contributed to the Autism Awareness Fund. The new license plates are just one of many efforts of the Autism Task Force to increase support and education of this complex neurological disorder.
According to Dr. Carol Adams, the task force has made tremendous progress on early intervention services, family support systems, transition support and increased federal funding. Applicants, for the special license plate, agree to have $15 of their $40 original issuance fee and $2 of their $25 renewal fee deposited into the Autism Awareness Fund through the Secretary of State’s office.
