The following provisions and requirements are related to these efforts.

Recipient staff working in ASGC-funded programs shall be made aware of ASGC support through agency orientation sessions, staff meetings, and other employee communication strategies. Recipients of ASGC funds will also receive a “Press Kit” with templates for press releases, face book and twitter postings as well as other marketing materials which they will agree to use in the promotion of the Florida “Support Autism Programs” specialty license plate and the ASGC. Evidence of these efforts may be a factor in future ASGC funding recommendations.
