Different states have different grant programs for people with disabilities looking for a mobility vehicle. New York organizations that award disability grants include the New York DDPC, ACCES-VR, the OTDA, as well as others. We’ll help guide you to the right one for your situation.
Veterans Affairs Auto Assistance Program
The Veterans Affairs Auto Assistance Program was created for former military service members. If you qualify for a one-time grant, you could get up to $20,000 for a wheelchair van. This valuable grant covers installation, replacement, and repair costs. To learn more, contact a regional VA medical center.
Those on Social Security Disability Income (SSI) can and should take advantage of the PASS Program. The PASS Program stands for Plan to Achieve Self Success. This organization is designed to provide resources to help individuals reach a predetermined goal. An example might include setting a goal to buy a mobility vehicle for transportation to work or school. Through the program, the car payment would be paid every month.
