A veteran having nonservice-connected disabilities may be eligible for a van lift, but isn't entitled to any operational equipment (automatic transmission, power brakes, power steering, hand controls, modifications of the driver area, etc.).
The veteran must also have a medical determination supporting the need for the adaptive equipment. Even though it doesn't amount to the same as an Auto Grant and adaptive equipment benefit, assistance with a one-time van conversion for a nonservice-connected veteran can substantially bring down the overall price of a new or used vehicle.
