OCT. 13, 2017: BREAKING NEWS!
We are so absolutely excited to announce that we have reached our requirement on the number of applications needed for the State of Massachusetts to begin production on the ALS ONE License Plate - the only plate in our state to fund ALS research and care. We will be submitting all applications to the MA-DOT on October 31st. If you would like to be included in the first batch of plates, please apply online by clicking the link below BY OCTOBER 20. After that, we cannot accept applications and you will have to wait until the plates are available for public purchase at the RMV (which could be up to 8 months ). The MA-DOT will begin production asap and will let us know when plates that have been applied for will be available for pick-up at your chosen RMV location. Thank you all so very much for your support! Extremely excited and grateful that we were able to do this just one year after our official launch at the State House!
