The Wheelchair Accessible Vehicle Grant Scheme 2015 has received over 300 applications. Since the Scheme opened in July, 46 applicants have already had their newly purchased WAV licensed, received their disability awareness training and been paid their Grant.
Available funding has been reached and applicants are being dealt with on a first come, first served basis. Currently, we are awaiting responses to 140 Provisional Grant Offer Letters, with a further 80 applicants on the waiting list awaiting assessment.
In the coming weeks, Provisional Grant Offer Letters will automatically lapse having reached their three month deadline from date of issue without having had a vehicle fully licensed. Approved applicants on the waiting list will receive a Provisional Grant Offer Letter as the current Provisional Offers lapse.
