Financial Resources for Funding a Handicap Van in Utah

Are you wondering how to afford the wheelchair van you or a loved one requires? Utah disability grants may be the answer. Lots of groups offer financial aid you can put toward the purchase or lease of a used or new handicap van, or toward modifications and accessories like access ramps, wheelchair/scooter lifts, lowered flooring, swiveling and lowering seats or adaptive driving hand controls.

But where do you find these Utah disability grants? Here at The Mobility Resource, we decided to answer that common question. We researched the most promising sources and published our findings below. You’ll be introduced to government divisions run by the state and organizations that either offer funding assistance themselves or that specialize in guiding you toward and helping you apply for this sort of monetary support; keep in mind, many do both, and you can always apply for more than one grant from more than one place.

State branches of nonprofit organizations devoted to particular disabilities are also great resources. Many offer disability grant money, and all are well-equipped to assist you in finding other sources.
