Wheelchair Van Grants and Funds in Maine

Can I get a disability vehicle grant in Maine?

Maine 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.

Residents of Maine with disabilities are automatically qualified for various state-based grants with funds that may be applied to increase the quality of life or independence of the recipient. Included in this is a form of transportation, which, for someone with a physical disability, may be a new or used conversion van or a full-size van with an installed wheelchair ramp.

Wheelchair van funds and grants in Maine are often nonprofits or state agencies that require an application and proof of disability in order to submit a request for assistance.

For some, applying for Social Security disability benefits may be able to cover some of the costs associated with their disability or day-to-day lives. This could greatly improve their quality of life for residents of Maine with a mobility or intellectual disability. To find your local Social Security office, click here.
