New Federal legislation that went into effect in January 2023 provides increased financial assistance for Veterans in need of modified vehicles.
Under the Advancing Uniform Transportation Opportunities for Veterans, or “AUTO” Act, Veterans will be eligible for this new grant every 10 years. Previously, the VA would only allow one purchase across a Veteran’s lifetime.
The new legislation also includes a provision that allows U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs to pay for vehicle modifications as medical services, such as van lifts, raised doors or roofs, air conditioning, or wheelchair tie-downs.
