Grants for Wheelchair-Accessible Vans and Mobility Equipment

Buying a wheelchair-accessible van and other mobility equipment can be a challenging and expensive process for wheelchair users and caregivers alike. Luckily, many government and civilian organizations offer financial assistance programs to help make this process easier.

These programs are often overlooked and can provide financial support to qualifying individuals.

Van and Mobility Equipment Grants

According to The Mobility Resource, financial grants and aid programs can help finance many different pieces of mobility equipment. Some of this equipment includes:

  • Vans
  • Scooters
  • Wheelchair lifts
  • Adaptive driving equipment

The Mobility Resource provides a state-by-state breakdown of available benefits for those looking to purchase vans and mobility equipment. For example, in Pennsylvania, there is a comprehensive list of government agencies and various organizations that offer financial aid for those purchasing mobility equipment. Some of these organizations supply money themselves, while others help find financial aid opportunities that may have been missed otherwise.

State-Based Disability Groups

State-based disability groups are another helpful option when looking for financial aid. These are the state chapters of national disability groups. These groups can provide financial and emotional support to their members.
