In Kentucky, there are different agencies and non-profits that have various programs designed to help people in need of adaptive driving equipment or wheelchair transportation. Below are just some of the more prominent groups that we have been able to identify in helping our website visitors with finding financial assistance.
It is our wish that every American who needs assistance can find the help they need. If you know of additional resources, please let us know. We will be glad to add organizations that are helping the disabled community or our special needs families with grant opportunities. If you have any questions, contact MobilityWorks today.
Governor Paul Patton established the Kentucky Department of Veterans Affairs (KDVA) in 1998. He charged the Department with helping veterans and their families obtain all federal, state and local veterans benefits to which they are entitled.
Kentucky was one of the first states funded under the Tech Act of 1988, which has been replaced by the Assistive Technology Act of 1998, as amended in 2004, (P.L. 108-364). The KATS Network is the Kentucky Assistive Technology program operating within its lead agency, the Office Vocational Rehabilitation, Education Cabinet. It consists of a statewide network of organizations and individuals connecting to enhance the availability of assistive technology devices and services to improve the productivity and quality of life for individuals with disabilities.
DAIL oversees the administration of statewide programs and services on behalf of Kentucky's elders and individuals with disabilities.
Protection and Advocacy (P&A) is an independent state agency that was designated by the Governor as the protection and advocacy agency for Kentucky. P&A's staff includes professional advocates and attorneys. We are advocates working together with people who have disabilities to promote and protect their legal rights. Through our information and referral services, we try to answer questions about your rights under disability laws.
