These license plates will provide a sustainable funding source to help reduce homelessness as a barrier to substance use recovery, reduce stigma and raise awareness about this epidemic.
New Jersey’s neighborhood new car dealers, applaud the Senate Budget & Appropriations Committee for passing the P.I.C.K. Awareness Act, creating a “Support Recovery” license plate that will generate revenue to fund substance abuse treatment resources. NJ CAR and its dealer members have been working with Parents In Connection for Kids, Inc. to raise the funds to cover the fees and initial production run of license plates.
Thank you to Assemblymen Sean Kean and Joseph Egan for initially sponsoring this Bill and to Senator Robert Singer. Special thanks to Senator Vin Gopal for his relentless efforts in getting this out of the SBA committee.
