Grants To Purchase A Car!
A number of states and counties provide funding directly to low-income families to help them purchase cars. In some states, funds for car purchase are available on a statewide basis. In other states, this benefit is provided by the county and may not be available throughout the state. In most cases, these benefits are available only to certain individuals/families that meet the eligibility requirements of the state.
