Georgia's Breast Cancer License Plate


PURPOSE: Generate funds to provide education, screening and treatment to undersesourced Georgians.

NEED: Breast cancer accounts for 3 out of 10 new cancers in Georgia women, making it most prevalent of all cancers. Rural women and minority women have less access to care and are a priority of the program.

BACKGROUND: Georgia CORE and Kaiser Permanente worked with the Georgia General Assembly to create the Breast Cancer License Tag program in 2002. Georgia CORE and the State Office of Rural Health have jointly administered the program since 2013.

PROCEEDS: The program receives 28% of revenues from initial purchases of the plates and 40% of annual renewal revenues.


REACH: Georgians in 3 out of every 4 counties have benefited in some way through screening, education and treatment services.




POPULATION: Nearly 9 out of every 10 Georgians benefiting from services through the program are non-white.
