Peoria-based Arizona Motorcycle Safety and Awareness Foundation announced the award of a $50,000 grant from the Arizona Governor’s Office of Highway Safety to help promote a helmet assistance program that will help individuals garner a department of transportation full face or modular helmet.
“We want to thank AZGOHS Director Alberto Gutier for his continued support for motorcycle safety in Arizona,” AMSAF Executive Director Mick Degn said. “This helmet program will help individuals garner a quality DOT helmet with some financial assistance from AMSAF and a discount from AMSAF-certified dealers. AMSAF believes the program will afford people the opportunity to purchase a good full-face or modular DOT helmet at a reduced cost.”
The applicant must fill out an application and donate $50 to AMSAF, which is tax-deductible. If funds are not available, people will not be able to get into the application process as it will be closed. If AMSAF has additional funds available, applicants will receive a receipt with a promo code and instructions they can take to a specified dealership. The letter will extend a credit for $125 off a specified helmet. In addition, the certified dealer will give an additional 25% off MSRP on full face or modular helmets.
In Arizona, riders have a choice whether to wear a helmet or not. AMSAF wants to assist those who choose to wear a helmet to financially be able to afford one. This program is possible due to grants, sponsors, donations and partners who want to help reduce crashes and fatalities. The helmet program is open to all Arizona residents 15 years, six months old or older.
