Wheelchair Vehicle Grants & Funding Options

The purchase of accessible vans and mobility equipment can be expensive.  United Access has multiple financing options as well as a guide to special funding and financing programs that may benefit you. Below are a few general options to research:

Wheelchair Van Financing

United Access has multiple first rate financial institutions as partners for various options to finance your accessible vehicle.  From sub-par credit to pristine credit, we can find a solution for you to purchase the accessible vehicle you need. 

State/Provincial Agencies

Every state has a Vocational Rehabilitation program. These are state funded programs that assist disabled individuals in getting back into or remaining in the workplace. In many cases, state VRs provide funding for vehicle modifications. Check with your our location in your state and we can get you in touch with the appropriate people and explain the process in your state

Veterans Affairs

If you are a disabled veteran or service member, you may qualify for financial assistance. For more information, contact us or visit our Veterans page with more information

Mobility Rebate Programs

Several vehicle manufacturers (Chrysler, Ford, Toyota, etc.) provide rebates to purchasers of new vehicles that require modifications for disabilities. Before you purchase a new vehicle for modifications, inquire with us about rebates.


Fundraising 

Contact all the people in your life and turn your need for a mobility solution into an outlet for socializing and creativity that can bring your whole community together. Get local news agencies involved by explaining what you’re trying to do and ask if they’d be interested in covering your story. 

 

GoFundMe is a great way to raise funds for your mobility equipment

 

Help Hope Live is a nonprofit that provides fundraising campaigns for mobility equipment and one-on-one fundraising help. Tax deductible for donors, bill pay support, and will not jeopardize your eligibility for state-based benefits.

Charitable Organizations/Churches

The options here can be extensive. Research what is available in your local market.

Grants 

There are organizations for different disabilities that provide information, support, and resources to help assist those with specific conditions. For example, the National Multiple Sclerosis Society might help if you have MS or United Cerebral Palsy may be able to help if you have CP. Reach out to the local chapter and see if they can help provide assistance or guidance.
