Florida Arts License Plate
The Florida Arts License Plate Program was created by the Legislature in 1994. Funds collected through the sale of these specialty plates are distributed to the counties where the plates are sold and are used to support arts organizations, programs, and activities within that county.
Each county must designate a recipient organization to administer funds that support arts activities within that county.
During the 2003 legislative session, Senate Bill 1954 passed, removing the Department of State from the revenue flow cycle for the Florida Arts License Plate Program. As a result of the legislation, counties will receive money directly from the Department of Highway, Safety and Motor Vehicles, allowing for a much quicker disbursement of funds.
