Car Tag Initiative

car tag


If you are visiting this page, then you are likely interested in pre-committing for the Shop Local, Support Small car tag or want to help us spread the word. 

Link to Pre Commit 


How many pre-commitments are required for the tag to be made? We need 1000 pre-commitments before October 31 in order for the tag to go into production with the full design. However, if we have 250 pre-commitments, a scaled-down version, with the design on the left side of the tag, will be produced. 

Why isn't the tag available at my DMV? See above. Unless we reach the goal minimum of 250 pre-commitments, the tag will not be produced.

How much does it cost to pre-commit? $50

How will the proceeds be used? Main Street Alabama will use the proceeds for grants for small businesses across the state.

Will I get a refund if the goal of pre-commitments isn't met? Yes, a refund of $48.75 will be issued by Main Street Alabama. The Alabama Department of Revenue keeps $1.25.

I completed the pre-commitment registration, now what? You will receive a receipt by email. 1) Forward that email to to receive some car tag swag. 2) Print and take to the DMV when it's time to renew your tag and after confirmation of production.

Do I have to own a business in a Main Street community to be eligible for the grant? No, grant opportunities will be made available to all small businesses in Alabama.

How can I help spread the word? Glad you asked. Scroll down to find links to social media graphics that you can share on your outlets, a link for collateral that you can print to distribute, or email us for postcards that you can distribute in your community.
