Nationwide Wheelchair Van Grants & Handicap Vehicle Funding

No matter where you live, this list contains organizations who help individuals and families across the United States and Canada obtain handicap van funding to get the mobility freedom they deserve. Please ensure that when applying for these grants that you have personal documentation on hand to complete your entry. Every entry may require different documentation.

At BraunAbility, we know that not every mobility aid is right for each person. That’s why we offer the widest selection of handicap vans, SUVs, and wheelchair lifts of any manufacturer. For some individuals and organizations, a full-size van with a wheelchair lift is preferred because of the increased cabin space to fit multiple passengers in their wheelchairs or scooters. For others, a handicap van is preferred for easier parking or maneuverability. Not sure which handicap van is right for you? Check out this page and decide for yourself!

It is always recommended to talk to a mobility consultant ahead of purchasing your mobility equipment to be sure it fits your needs, your lifestyle, and your budget. Either before or after securing grants and funding for your wheelchair accessible vehicle, reach out to your local dealer or a BraunAbility Product Specialist to ensure you are making the right investment for you.

If you know of a wheelchair accessible vehicle financial aid source we don’t have listed, please contact us at suggestions@braunability.com.
