Michigan Department of Military and Veterans Affairs (DMVA)

For disabled US veterans who are Michigan residents, the state’s DMVA is your go-to resource for all sorts of services and support. If your impaired mobility is a result of or was made worse by military duty or VA care, you are entitled to financial help and other assistance. This often includes a disability grant to get you the wheelchair van or vehicle equipment and modifications you need.

Michigan Rehabilitation Services (MRS)

MRS wants to help the state’s disabled find and maintain employment. For many, this requires a handicapped-friendly van with which to seek jobs, attend interviews and, of course, get to work on a daily basis. If you’re in this situation, the agency may offer you a disability grant applicable toward a handicap van.
