Alaska Wheelchair Van Grants and Funds

Are there disability vehicle grants in Alaska?

Alaska has programs and services to help aid residents in acquiring the mobility equipment they need. Some of these grants are condition-based, while others are community-based.  Alaska provides several state grants and related funding that covers assistive technology devices, such as e-reader technology, wheelchair vans, wheelchair lifts, stair lifts, hand controls, and more. Each listing comes with a specific set of criteria that must be met in order to qualify for funds. Make sure you read through carefully as some listings are condition or age-specific.

Medicaid and Medicare are often the first resources people turn to when looking for funding for a wheelchair accessible vehicle or grants for vehicle mobility equipment. Read this post from the BraunAbility Article Library to learn more about what Medicare covers
