Georgia's Breast Cancer License Plate
PURPOSE: Generate funds to provide education, screening and treatment to underserved 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: Kaiser Permanente and the Georgia Center for Oncology Research and Education (Georgia CORE) 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.
