My 1989 wheelchair mini van is no longer drivable and I am retired and do not have the funds to buy a new one.  I now have to rely on another to drive me.  I am very involved with community work with children and adults but now have to tell them "no" because I do not have my own transportation. Please help in finding a grant to fund a wheelchair accessible mini van. Are there grants for a wheelchair accessible mini van?

This is a tough situation I know. Do you belong to a church or other faith community? Sometimes they will help make your need known and take up a collection -- you might be surprised how generous people can be.

You can also check this review of the government site. There have unfortunately been changes to the site and it is no longer as helpful as it once was. However, it should get you do a site that contains links to resoures for people with disabilities.

You should also take a look at a site called Mobile Works. It will let you click on the state you live in and it will tell you what grans and assistance programs are available where you live.
