The Florida Support Autism Programs Specialty License Plate annually generates funds that support nonprofit organizations that provide direct services for individuals with autism and related disabilities in Florida.
The Autism Services Grant Council in 2022 awarded a total of $124,160 in grants to 19 Florida-based nonprofit organizations, according to a news release.
All nonprofit 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 provide services to individuals with autism and related disabilities in Florida are eligible to apply for grants, the release said.

The deadline for proposals is July 31.
The Autism License Plate Fund and the Autism Services Grant Council are administered by Arc Broward, a nationally accredited Florida nonprofit, Section 501(c)(3) exempt organization, the release said.
“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,” Dennis Haas, chair of the grant council, said in the release.
“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,” said Haas.
