Spinal Cord Injury Grants
Specific medical grants have been created for people with spinal cord injuries to help fund the purchase of a wheelchair accessible van or other mobility equipment. These can be combined with an unlimited amount of other mobility funding resources when purchasing a wheelchair van from AMS Vans. After financial arrangements have been confirmed with your chosen foundation(s) and/or bank, AMS Vans will gladly contact them and finalize payment for you.

While they do not make grants to individuals, information specialists in their Paralysis Resource Center can direct you to other resources.
The Travis Roy Foundation
This foundation is dedicated to enhancing the life of spinal cord-injured individuals and their families by providing adaptive equipment and finding a cure for spinal cord injuries through increased funding of research. Self-reliance and the ability to be as independent as possible is their goal for recipients.
