Year Plate: 1998

Number of Plates on the Road: 12,468

Funds Raised for Charity: $ 4,254,097.00

Massachusetts General Law Chapter 29 Section 2JJ established the Child Care Quality Fund.  Revenues from the Invest in Children license plates provide funding for non-profit child care programs to undertake initiatives that improve quality and service delivery including educator qualifications, the purchase of educational curricula and materials, consumer education, family engagement, technical assistance for achieving national accreditation, language and literacy support, and the purchase of toys and equipment.

The Invest in Children “license plate funds” help to promote school readiness, school success, and positive outcomes for children by supporting and enhancing the quality of services being delivered to children in early education and out of school time settings across the Commonwealth.
