Free Cars For Low Income Families

Are you curious as to how you can get free cars for low income families?  Believe it or not there are actually a good number of organizations out there who offer grants (if not outright cars) for families in financial need.

Think about how necessary a car is in today’s society.  Perhaps if you live in a large city with an excellent public transportation you can get away without having a car.  But even then there are times that a car could come in handy; indeed when a car can be downright necessary, especially when you don’t have the cash on hand to call a cab.  Unfortunately for many low income families owning a car is a pipe dream.  They simply can’t afford one even though they live in a country where one’s way of life is defined by being able to move about independently.

The United States has one of the highest concentrations of cars per capita of any country on the planet, but unfortunately the distribution of cars is not even throughout the population.  While many families own two or more cars; sometimes even having one car per member of the household, other families, usually those with lower incomes or who fall in under the poverty line end up having no cars at all, which is where those organizations that offer grants for cars or who award cars to deserving families outright can definitely play their part.

Grants for cars for low income families come in one of two basic forms, they are either grants for money in order to purchase a car, or cars awarded to families outright based on financial need.  These cars and the money to purchase cars either come from nonprofit organizations or charitable organizations. Two examples of these kinds of organizations are and Vehicles for Change. solicits essays from individuals (low income families and students) or nonprofit organizations that are looking to get a free car in order to make a difference in their lives or in their work.  Along with proof of financial need these essays are judged by the organization and free used cars are awarded to those individuals who fit their specifications.  For more information on car grants go to: NOTE: is no longer providing a car grant service please see Kipp Shives updated post on Car Grants and Cars For Low Income Families for current providers.

Vehicles for Change is a charitable foundation that awards low income families, individuals and nonprofit organizations rebuilt and repaired used cars to help them overcome the worst of their difficulties.  For more information regarding Vehicles for Change, go to:

Of course these are not the only organizations out there that offer grants to low income families for cars.  In fact, if you Google “car grants” chances are good that you will find organizations specific to your area; set up to help individuals in need get affordable vehicles in order to make their lives easier.

    I have a mother who is disabled. It has been hard trying to give her the proper care that she needs, form doctor appointments keeping up with medication, and other medical equipment for day to day life. She has been through several surgeries from her back, neck and hands, with more pending. The medical bills are enormous. I have to work full time in order to help with the living expenses which has been difficult being that her specialist are an hour away from were we live. I love my mother so mush that I am willing to do anything to help her live comfortable as possible. I also have a niece with special needs that has to be transported to school and activities. While doing all this I am attending college classes trying to make a better future for my family.

    I’m praying for a vehicle. My husband and I can’t work because we have no way to get there and we don’t know what we are going to do. We have a one year old little boy. We have to beg people to take him to doctors appointments. We would very much appreciate reliable transportation.
