GRANT  GUIDELINES AND APPLICATION

The Road to Independence is Yours

The Wheels for Jacquie Foundation was started in 2020 with a desire to help people and families with disabilities obtain accessible transportation that works for them. Depending on the dollars raised, this grant is designed to either help pay for or entirely pay for an accessible vehicle, including the needed equipment.
 

We will be working toward granting one vehicle per year and past applicants who were not grant recipients are encouraged to apply again. If you have received funds from the Wheels for Jacquie Foundation in the past, you are not eligible to apply again. Applications are confidential and will be reviewed by the Board of Directors. Recipients will be notified in December.
