Utah CHD Awareness License Plate

We have exciting news! After much hard work, the Utah legislature passed a bill this year allowing for the nation’s first ever CHD specialty license plate. These license plates are now available to pre-order! The name of the specialty license plate is Children’s Heart Disease - so it covers awareness for those with congenital heart defects and childhood onset heart disease.

Before the license plates can be manufactured, IHH needs 500 vehicles pre-paid for the plates. The cost for the plates is a one time $45 fee and an annual fee of $25/year. The initial $45 fee includes the plate fee, registration decals, postage, and the initial yearly contribution. Intermountain Healing Hearts is the sponsoring organization for these license plates (meaning that we are covering the costs for manufacturing the plates) and IHH will also receive the yearly proceeds from the license plates generate. This plate may also be personalized with up to 5 alphanumeric characters by additionally submitting Form TC-817 with the required personalization fee of $50.00.

Anyone with a vehicle registered in Utah (car, trailer, rv etc) can order this license plate. So please spread the word to your family and friends.

Please fill out the license plate application (FOUND HERE) with $45 check or money order made out to Intermountain Healing Hearts and return to:

P.O. Box 581306

Do not delay, the sooner we get the 500 applications in, the quicker we can start printing the plates!

What an exciting way to display CHD Awareness!

IHH would like to thank Mark Weissinger and Andee Sanders who helped make this project possible.
