Veteran Programs

Contact a Veteran Advocate

As the premier manufacturer of wheelchair-accessible vans, VMI can help veterans achieve independence and greater access to life. By working closely with veterans to assess individual mobility needs, our specially-trained veteran advocates can provide education on the mobility benefits and disability grants that could make owning a mobility vehicle possible.

The following grants and programs are available to veterans and may help to reduce the out-of-pocket expense when purchasing a mobility vehicle.

Auto Allowance Grant

Eligible veterans can receive $19,817 to use toward the purchase of a wheelchair-accessible vehicle. The grant must be approved by the VA and gets paid directly to the seller of the vehicle.

Automobile Adaptive Equipment Program

Eligible veterans can receive equipment and training to help with entry, exit, and/or operation of a motor vehicle. Qualifying equipment includes platform wheelchair lifts, lowered floors, raised roofs and doors, power door openers, hand controls, and kneeling, braking, and digital driving systems.

Non-Service-Connected Van Modifications Program

The Van Modification Ingress/Egress is a program providing funding to veterans for vehicular access equipment allowing safe entry and exit into and out of a vehicle. Non-service-connected veterans with conditions such as MS, ALS, quadriplegia, paraplegia or loss of use of both lower extremities are eligible to receive non-operational equipment to provide ingress and egress to the van. Non-operational equipment includes lifts, tie downs, a raised roof, raised doors and a passenger transfer seat.
