Michigan Department Of Health And Human Services Expands Vehicle Purchase Assistance Program To $4000

In a bid to enhance accessibility for residents in need, the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) has raised the ceiling for its Direct Supportive Services (DSS) for Vehicle Purchase Assistance to $4,000. 

The updated criteria outline the eligibility requirements for individuals seeking financial aid for a vehicle, emphasizing the importance of prior approval from MDHHS, limited to one vehicle purchase per lifetime. Applicants must be recipients of specific MDHHS benefits, possess a valid Michigan driver’s license, and demonstrate the necessity for private transportation due to a lack of reliable public options.

This expansion aims to empower individuals to secure reliable transportation, particularly those engaged in employment or self-employment, reinforcing the state’s commitment to fostering self-sufficiency among its residents.
