R&J Mobility Service honors American veterans for their service, courage, and sacrifice for our country.
If you are a disabled veteran, you may be eligible for as much as $49,000 towards the cost of a wheelchair accessible vehicle.
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.
Registering for this special program provides USAA members exclusive savings of $1,000 on wheelchair-accessible vans.
Disabled veterans may be able to benefit from a $1,000 rebate from the vehicle manufacturer. A VMI veteran advocate can help you determine if you qualify for these savings.
Operation Independence $1,000
To further assist disabled veterans, VMI and our Select Dealer Network are offering a $1,000 rebate toward the first-time purchase of a van with a new VMI conversion. The vehicle purchased must be converted for wheelchair access by VMI and purchased from a VMI Select Dealer.
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.
