WE'VE REACHED OUR GOAL OF 300!
As you may have heard, even though there was a big splash with the announcement that the 4th District Federal Court had reversed its decision about the legality of the NC Choose Life license plate. We are submitting the required initial applications to the DOT where they must be processed before manufacturing can begin.
We have been informed that the processing and manufacturing can take up tp 3 months. Applicants will receive their new license plate in the mail.
NOT ON THE DMV WEBSITE YET
After the plates are mailed to initial applicants (maybe by November 2016) the Choose Life license plate will appear on the list of NC specialty plates that are available. It can then be ordered online or at local DMV offices.
Until the plate is available online, CPCF will continue to receive additional applications.
(See application tab on this website).
Carolina Pregnancy Care Fellowship is the designated agent through which funds generated from the license plate are distributed. It is not the final destination as some new articles have state incorrectly. Learn more about the important role CPCF has in assisting NC pregnancy centers at www.cpcflink.org.
YOUR NEXT STEP: FILL OUT AN APPLICATION AND RETURN IT TO CPCF.

How is the Choose Life plate money distributed?
EveEvery pregnancy resource center in North Carolina will have the opportunity to apply for funding. After centers have met the eligibility requirements, funds generated from the plates will be distributed equally among them.
Who makes those decisions?
According to the law, the Carolina Pregnancy Care Fellowship is the legally designated agency for disbursement of plate funds. The CPCF board of directors has established criteria for eligibility as well as a plan for the disbursement of funds when they become available.
