Modification to a vehicle for a physically challenged person can be expensive. Here are some possibilities that might help you defray some of the expense:
1. The Veteran’s Administration – You may qualify for 100% reimbursement for car modifications if your disability is considered service related.
2. Your state's division of vocational rehabilitation may be a resource if you need your car to stay employed.
3. Many states have federally funded assistive technology loan programs offering long-term loans for adaptive equipment.
4. Many private insurance companies cover driver rehabilitation programs.
5. Automobile manufacturer’s rebate program for new vehicles - Chrysler, Ford, Toyota and General Motors all have reimbursement programs for vehicle modification costs. This assistance can be up to $1,000 reimbursement on adaptive equipment.
6. Many groups like the Multiple Sclerosis Society offer direct assistance for those disabled by a disease related to their foundation.
