IBCAT License plate information
Since the Breast Cancer Awareness special group recognition (SGR) license plate was first made available in 2002, over $6 million has been distributed by the Indiana Breast Cancer Awareness Trust (IBCAT) through competitively awarded grants to organizations throughout Indiana for innovative projects for breast cancer screening, diagnostic and support services not otherwise available to medically underserved populations in Indiana. The NewDay Foundation of LaPorte has been awarded a grant from IBCAT and utilizes a voucher program for free mammograms for uninsured and underinsured women in LaPorte county.
The mission of the Indiana Breast Cancer Awareness Trust, Inc. is to increase awareness and improve access to breast cancer screening diagnosis and support services throughout Indiana. Indiana residents may purchase an Indiana breast cancer awareness special group recognition license plate by visiting any Indiana Bureau of Motor Vehicles branch, online at IN.gov/BMV, or on a BMV Connect kiosk for an annual $40 fee, $25 of which is a direct tax-deductible donation (to the extent of the law). The plate may be purchased for display on passenger motor vehicles, motorcycles, trucks with a declared gross weight of not more than 11,000 pounds, and recreational vehicles. The sale of these license plates provides the financial support to continue the grants for mammograms and other diagnostic testing.
