Take Action: Ask Your Members of Congress to Support Additional Auto Grants for Paralyzed Veterans
Access to an adapted vehicle is essential to the mobility and health of catastrophically disabled veterans who need a reliable means of transportation to get them to and from work and attend medical appointments, as well as meet family obligations. 

The current, one-time Department of Veterans Affairs’ (VA) Automobile Allowance Grant of roughly $21,500 covers anywhere from one-half to one-third of the cost to procure a vehicle to accommodate certain disabilities that resulted from a condition incurred or aggravated during active military service. The substantial costs of modified vehicles, coupled with inflation, present a financial hardship for many disabled veterans who need to replace their primary mode of transportation once it reaches its lifespan. Due to the high cost to procure replacement vehicles, veterans often retain them beyond their reliability point. 

PVA Position:

PVA supports the AUTO for Veterans Act (H.R. 1361/S. 444), which would allow eligible veterans to receive an Automobile Allowance Grant every ten years for the purchase of an adapted vehicle.
