Wheelchair Van Grants and Funds in Rhode Island
Are there disability vehicle grants in Rhode Island?
Aside from national funding sources, states also offer specific grants for its residents, as is the case with Rhode Island. The available funding sources are for wheelchair vans, lifts for full-size vans, and various other mobility equipment and you’ll notice that some are restricted based on veteran status, condition, or age. Be sure to pay close attention when applying for grants and funding for accessible vehicles to know what documentation to include, what the funds apply to, and when to expect a response.
Most grants and funds for assistive technology will not fully cover the cost of personal accessible transportation but can be combined to help cover the cost of a wheelchair van. Additionally, BraunAbility Finance is the first and only dedicated finance service offered by a manufacturer of accessible vehicles. We know our products and with a team of over 100 years of combined experience in finance and vehicle sales, we can help you find the payment plan that is right for you and your family.
Did you know BraunAbility dealerships accept trade-ins of even standard (non-accessible) vehicles? Applying the trade-in estimation of your current vehicle to your overall funds needed to purchase a new accessible vehicle means you need less funding overall for a wheelchair accessible vehicle or mobility equipment.
