Arts license plates available for purchase at county offices

The Kansas Creative Arts Industries Commission (KCAIC) has announced that arts themed license plates are now available for purchase at county treasurer offices across the state. The plates will directly fund grants to arts projects and communities in Kansas through one of the KCAIC’s programs.

“Funds received through license plate sales help fund the projects of artists and organizations that are growing the Kansas economy and enhancing quality of life through the arts,” said KCAIC Chairman Larry Meeker. “Purchasing an arts plate is a great way for Kansans to support the arts in their communities and our state.”

Individuals interested in obtaining an arts plate should take their current standard plates, along with proof of insurance and registration, to their county treasurer’s office. The fee to purchase the plate is $50, and 100 percent of the purchase fee will be used by the KCAIC to fund arts programs in Kansas. If registration is current, registration fees transfer from one plate to another, although county processing fees will apply.

“During the holiday season, many Kansans are looking for opportunities to give back to their communities,” said Kansas Commerce Secretary Pat George. “These plates are a way for Kansans to contribute to the work of numerous artists and organizations in the state, while displaying their support for the arts.”

Arts license plate fees are eligible for matching funds from the National Endowment for the Arts. The KCAIC has awarded more than $1 million in state and matching federal funds since fiscal year 2014. On Oct. 23, the KCAIC announced its latest round of grants, awarding more than $40,000 through its Arts Integration and Strategic Investment programs to 11 projects and communities in Kansas.
