Service Connected Programs

The Veterans Health Administration has determined that if a veteran incurred or aggravated illness or injury in the line of duty in the active military, naval or air service, the veteran may be eligible for service-connected programs. The two main programs offering assistance to service-connected veterans are the Auto Allowance Grant and the Automobile Adaptive Equipment Program.

Auto Allowance $20,174

The Auto Allowance Grant provided by the Veteran’s Benefits Administration, awards $20,174.68 to eligible service-connected veterans for the purchase of a wheelchair-accessible vehicle, not limited to a car, truck or van. To be eligible to receive financial assistance, a veteran or serviceperson must have acquired or aggravated an injury or disease during active military service, or as a result of medical treatment or examination, vocational rehabilitation, or compensated work therapy provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs. This grant must be approved by the VA, can only be awarded once in a lifetime, and is paid directly to the dealer upon purchase of a vehicle.

USAA $1,000

Registering for this special program provides USAA members exclusive savings of $1,000 on wheelchair-accessible vans.

Auto Adaptive $16,000 to $26,000

The Automobile Adaptive Equipment Program provides equipment and training to help eligible, service-connected veterans safely enter, exit and/or operate a motor vehicle. It includes, but is not limited to, special equipment necessary for wheelchair access and any modification of the size of the interior space of the vehicle. The Adaptive Equipment Program may be paid more than once, and may be paid to either the seller or the veteran. The Veterans Health Administration will reimburse a veteran for automobile adaptive equipment a maximum of two times within a 4-year period.

Non-Service Connected

Veterans who do not have a service-related condition as determined by the Veteran Health Administration are classified as non-service connected veterans. Veterans who served in the military for at least 90 days and were honorably discharged can receive VA Health benefits, including funding for a safe means of transportation. Even non-service connected veterans who served more than 20 years ago and did not sustain their injury while on active military duty may qualify for these vehicle mobility benefits.
