Help us raise awareness to find a cure!
Nearly seventy thousand people in Kentucky right now have Alzheimer's disease and that number is only growing. Having the plates will raise awareness of the disease, which will become more prevalent as Kentucky's population ages.
“The Alzheimer’s specialty plate has been a dream of ours for years,” said DeeAnna Esslinger, Executive Director of the Greater Kentucky and Southern Indiana chapter. “Not only will the plates be a very visible reminder of those suffering with Alzheimer’s, but their sale will also help raise funds for local education initiatives.”
Alzheimer's License Plate Update:
We have received the required 900 applications! The Alzheimer’s Association has received approval from the State for an Alzheimer’s specialty Kentucky license plate for Alzheimer’s awareness and education in Kentucky, and we have collected the required 900 applications to make the plate a reality. Next, the state will issue plates within three months. Moving forward, drivers will be able to select the plate whenever renewing tags at any county clerk office.
For those who applied for a plate, you will be notified by your local county clerk when your Alzheimer’s plate is ready to be picked up. Your $25.00 deposit will be applied to the initial or renewal fee. You will also have the option of including a $10.00 add-on that will fund Alzheimer’s awareness and education activities in Kentucky. If you decide to make the $10.00 donation please do so with a separate check.
