…with YOUR HELP. TASK NEEDED – at least 200 completed applications Amount needed for each application: $40 (for one year) or $65 (for two years, if the vehicle is manufactured in an odd- numbered year) Includes a $15 fee that will be paid to the MO Department of Revenue
BENEFITS FOR PLATES SHOW PRIDE in the Fraternity Contribute to worthwhile programs conducted by chapters throughout the state Assist collegiate brothers and Sigma Betas with scholarships
STEP 1 Brothers will complete a MO Form 1716, along with an application for an Emblem Use Authorization Statement (EUAS), for each vehicle he would like a plate for. A money order will be made out to “Phi Beta Sigma Fraternity” in the amount of $40 or $65 for each vehicle, depending on initial application of one or two years.
STEP 2 Brothers with completed applications and fees included will receive a e-mail noting that an EUAS has been processed in their behalf. (NOTE: Brothers who have not been financial with the Fraternity at any point will have need to note two brothers currently active in an alumni chapter that can verify their membership, in order to have (an) EUAS(s) processed.)
STEP 3 Brothers will be notified by the Department of Revenue that the plates are ready at the license office they have indicated on the Form 1716. An additional $15 will need to be paid at time of pickup if a second year has been requested, along with any regular license fees. Since all fraternity plates will be renewable in the month of July, differences with existing plates will also be settled at the license office at the time of pickup.
IN FUTURE YEARS To renew the plate, a brother must pay $25 per vehicle per year to the Fraternity in order to obtain another Emblem Use Authorization Statement (EUAS). The EUAS will be given to the brother and he will deliver it to the Department of Revenue, along with the annual $15 fee for specialty plates and another MO Form 1716, along with regular license fees.

ALLOCATION IN FUTURE YEARS The amounts distributed to each chapter would be reassessed on an annual basis (e.g. every June 30 th, which is the State of Missouri’s fiscal year end), according to the amount of valid EUASs that have been approved and used for plate acquisition or renewal.
