Long Island Sound License Plates
Thank you for showing interest in the Long Island Sound Plate.
When you buy a Long Island Sound plate, a portion of the fee goes into the Long Island Sound Fund. The Department of Environmental Protection distributes the money to schools, municipalities, environmental groups, and other non-profit organizations, which apply for grants for projects to benefit Long Island Sound.
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.
The cost to replace a mutilated Long Island Sound plate is $15. See instructions here.
