Veterans who need help, having served our country and were disabled? You will find the following information very helpful in saving time and money.
As of October 1, 2011, the Department
of Veterans Affairs Auto Allowance for Disabled Veterans (4502) will
increase from $11,000 to $18,900. The one-time grant gives disabled
veterans greater affordability when purchasing a vehicle adapted for
their accessibility needs.
Operation Independence is an awareness campaign to help Veterans understand and utilize their vehicle mobility benefits such as the auto allowance grant and the automobile adaptive equipment program. These benefits along with the assistance of a VMI Select Dealer can help a Veteran select and purchase a wheelchair accessible vehicle that best fits their needs.
VMI is the premier manufacturer of wheelchair accessible vans. VMI Select Dealers are experts in mobility assessment and customization. Together we have combined our knowledge with the Paralyzed Veterans of America to increase awareness with disabled Veterans regarding VA vehicle benefits, and help them get the benefits they have earned while serving our country.
