Grant for a free vehicle

Postby Rosemary1989 » Sun Nov 28, 2010 7:27 pm

I am a 21 year old single mother and I need a vehicle so I can get a job and get back on my feet. My father recently passed away so I need transportation to get a job so I can pay the bills here. I have no money and no job and was told there are grants to get a new or used vehicle is this true and if so how can I apply for it.

Have you heard about the Ways to Work auto loan/grant program? People who need a car for work related transportation can usually qualify for some type of assistance and/or loan program. Many of the Ways to Work auto loan programs are run at the community action agency level in your county.

I was wondering if there is any sort of auto assistance program other than what is listed in your reply to Rosemary1989. I checked into the auto program through "http://www.needhelppayingbills.com/html ... _work.html" and got nowhere because of our situation: My husband has life-threatening medical problems (kidney failure and congestive heart disease) and is therefore permanently disabled and has anywhere from 3 to 7 medical appointment PER WEEK - and some of them are in a city about 75 miles away from us. Since he had worked in the court system for a number of years he can not receive any disability assistance because of the way the federal disability program works (too complicated to explain here), so all the income he receives is less than $1K social security per month. I was down-sized almost a year ago and have been unable to find work and am receiving basically minimum wage income through unemployment (due to federal extension). Our only car was stolen about a month ago. There is no way we could purchase another car because we barely scrape by each month as it is - there is nothing left over to even start saving for a car. We've been begging rides from friends to my husband's medical appointment here in town and have had to cancel all of those out of town. I haven't been able to find any program out there who helps people in our situation, so if you know of anything, PLEASE let me know.

Thanks!

Look into some of these programs for cars. Now they will usually provide used cars or low interest loans for work related issues, but ask about for medical issues. If they can't help you, they may know of other options for you. Also, what state, and we can send you state specific programs and options. As there may be local charities that offer cars or transportation for medical appointments. Find the car information at this resource.

We live in Colorado Springs, CO. I've spent several days contacting local county and state sources and all the leads they've provided, as well as the leads provided on the web site you attached but all I've been able to find here is loans that are much too expensive for me to ever pay unless I first find a good paying job and am able to figure out how to get there (the bus system here in Colorado Springs is pretty sad).

Thanks.

I lost a job, and I am having a difficult time finding a new job. I live in Maricopa city and I do not have a reliable car (which is why I list my job). I am confident I have the qualifications to obtain a job however my car is always breaking, my food stamps have run out, my ED3 electricity has sent shut off notices along with Gas and water.
I have asked for extensions but they are unwilling to extended it. I Today I received a 3 day pay or quit because I am 2 months behind on rent. I have been living independently my whole life and have never needed help from anyone or government. I’m desperate now. I have no family and no resources.
When I call 211 every organization says they have no funds.... I need help! Please help me find a short term crisis grant or something similar to help me out of this mind and prevent my family from loosing everything.
