Save Money with Sponsorship Programs

We have over 30 years’ experience and knowledge in the Sponsor-A-Highway industry. Our expertise allows us to manage and implement successful programs on a local and state level. AAHLRSA programs have saved millions of dollars for our DOT/Agency partners.

The benefit of any sponsorship program is savings to the Department of Transportation on expenditures that would typically be spent for litter removal. There is NO COST involved for the DOT and dollar value is calculated in terms of savings.

As a partner to our agency, we have found AAHLRSA to be outstanding and highly valuable. It is our hope that this partnership continues without lapse."
