Breast Cancer License Tag

 

Did you know that $22 of the fee for every breast cancer license tag sold or renewed goes to help women in need?
 

Yes, for each breast cancer license tag purchase or renewal from the Georgia Department of Revenue, $22 of your fee supports grants for organizations that provide screenings, education and treatment for Georgians, including those without insurance that are also below the poverty level.

Georgia CORE administers the Georgia Access to Care, Treatment, and Services (ACTS) Breast Cancer Grant Program on behalf of the Georgia State Office of Rural Health. Georgia CORE awarded over $2.9 million in ACTS grants from 2014-2016 to 24 community organizations from the sale and renewal of breast cancer license tags. Located across the state, these organizations use the funds to expand breast cancer education, screening, access, outreach and treatment to indigent women in Georgia. 

The more breast cancer license tags sold and renewed in Georgia, the more services and education provided to those Georgians that may not otherwise have that access. Please find out how you can purchase a breast cancer license tag by visiting your county tag office. To find the location of your tag office, please visit the Georgia Department of Revenue web site.

Put a breast cancer license tag on your car to show support and help Georgia’s needy women.

The Breast Cancer License Tag Genetic Testing Fund

The Breast Cancer License Tag Genetic Testing Fund was established by Georgia CORE in January 2014. This Fund will help underinsured Georgians with a family history of Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer (HBOC) who would otherwise not be able to afford genetic testing or have no insurance coverage for it receive needed genetic testing. The application is available online and encourages genetic counseling by requiring that the submission be completed by a genetic services provider as defined under Commission on Cancer Standard 2.3.
