The center will get $25 from every first issue plate, and $20 from each renewal.

Initial issue cost of the plates will be $62 for standard plates and $97 for personalized plates.

Renewals will cost $30, and $50 respectively.

"Drivers with this license plate send a clear message that they are strong, compassionate, and unwavering in their memory of lives lost, said Tennille Pereira, director of the Vegas Strong Resiliency Center. "I commend Governor Sisolak, Clark County, and Nevada Legislators who made this specialty plate a reality in the past legislative session. Not only does this license plate enable Nevadans across the state to memorialize victims, but it will also provide valuable funds for continuing healing work for those impacted by the tragic events."

The Resiliency Center has served more than 10,000 people since opening on Oct. 23, 2017.

Administrators said anyone affected by the Route 91 Harvest Music Festival shooting should reach out to them at 702-455-2433.
