Support the Arts License Tag Fund

Design by Alabama artist Bethanne Bethard Hill, 2021.

The Alabama Arts License Tag Grant Program aims to promote the arts in Alabama, especially arts education, including visual arts, folk arts, and performing arts programming.

A six-person volunteer committee governs the program. Committee members serve on a voluntary basis and one member is appointed by each of the following organizations or individuals: the Alabama State Council on the Arts, the Alabama Arts Alliance, the State Department of Education, the Governor, the Lieutenant Governor, and the Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Proceeds from the sale of the license plate will be used to fund a variety of arts in education and community arts projects. Buy the Support the Arts plate the next time you renew your registration at your county's vehicle licensing office. More information at
