Wheelchair Van Grants for Veterans & Veteran Vehicle Grants

BraunAbility is humbled and proud to serve you as a veteran of the armed forces. You have bravely sacrificed for the safety of our country and your selflessness truly can never fully be repaid. Though the Veterans Administration is in many cases able to help with the funding necessary to purchase mobility equipment such as a wheelchair ramp or wheelchair accessible vehicle, the following wheelchair van grants and funds are available for veterans who still need financial assistance.

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, wheelchair SUVs, and wheelchair lifts of any manufacturer. For some individuals and organizations, a full-size van with a 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 all of your questions are being answered.

The following foundations offer wheelchair vehicle assistance for nonprofit organizations seeking financial assistance. If you know of a wheelchair accessible vehicle financial aid source we don’t have listed, please contact us at suggestions@braunability.com.
