Need help in finding a car?
Not sure you'll qualify for a car loan?
The Vermont Car Coach Project can help you to find reliable transportation to improve your employment opportunities.
The Car Coach, an auto sales and service industry expert, works with you to address credit issues, find a safe and reliable vehicle for sale, and assist you with financing (loan) and purchasing. We have relationships with many car dealers and repair shops, and provide information on car maintenance, the responsibilities of vehicle ownership and safe driving habits. We may also be able to provide assistance with a down payment or a loan guarantee.
Vehicles obtained through the Car Coach Project allow you to finish or continue degrees or training programs, accept more hours at work, move from part-time jobs to full-time employment and/or provide reliable transportation to family appointments and functions. For the first time, many people are able to borrow money at a competitive rate through conventional financing and others are able to improve their credit scores.
The Vermont Car Coach Project is a partnership between CVCAC, the Vermont Department for Children and Families and Voc Rehab Vermont.
Who is eligible? The Care Coach assists Reach Up and Voc Rehab participants throughout Vermont who are employed or close to securing employment. A referral from a Reach Up or Voc Rehab case manager is required.
