Disability Assistance and Grants in New York

As many New Yorkers with disabilities discover, the cost of a handicap van is more than that of a traditional vehicle. Adaptive technologies such as hand controls, ramps, wheelchair locking mechanisms, and other features push the price tags out of many people’s reach.

Luckily, there are options for handicap van financing in New York. There are many organizations dedicated to helping people with disabilities and we have included some below. If you have any questions or can’t find a resource you are looking for contact AutoCrafting.
