Keep Kids Safe Plates

Keep Kids Safe Plate

Thank you for showing interest in our Keep Kids Safe Plate.

When you purchase a Keep Kids Safe plate, a portion of the fee goes to the Keep Kids Safe Fund. This fund makes many worthy projects happen for youngsters. The fund awards grants to schools, hospitals, municipalities and other non-profit organizations working to make all Connecticut children safer from severe and preventable injuries.

To order these plates, the vehicle must be currently registered in Connecticut. Applications for vehicles registered out-of-state or with a temporary registration will not be accepted.  Also, if your registration is due to expire within the next 45 days, you must renew your registration before applying for these plates.

You may only acquire the same registration type as currently on your vehicle. For instance, if you currently have combination plates on your vehicle, you can only receive combination plates - you cannot request combination plates if your vehicle is currently registered with passenger plates.
