FUELING OPPORTUNITIES TO THRIVE

WAYS TO GET INVOLVED

A lack of safe, reliable transportation is a major barrier faced by many neighbors in the Great Grand Forks Community. Wheels for Work is fueling opportunities to thrive for individuals and families. We are helping neighbors get to work or school by providing safe and reliable transportation through 3 key areas:

Car Voucher

Transportation Vouchers

The Transportation Voucher program increases access to transportation for community members. Vouchers are provided to neighbors who cannot afford to operate/own a personal vehicle. We offer personalized solutions to meet the individual or family’s needs.
Car Repair

An unexpected car repair can be a financial catastrophe. The Car Repair program provides financial assistance for individuals or families who have car repairs that are preventing the vehicle from being operated in a safe manner.

Wheels for Work-Car Repair program will assist individuals or families who have car repairs that are preventing the vehicle from being operated in a safe manner. This can include routine maintenance such as oil changes, windshield wipers and more. Repair assistance is limited to $3,000.00 per applicant. United Way will partner with local car dealerships and autobody shops to receive discounted labor and other costs on a case-by-case basis.
How to Apply:
Priority on the waitlist will be given to applicants with child(ren) under the age of 18 living in the home.

Transportation Vouchers

The Wheels for Work Transportation Voucher program is aimed at increasing transportation access for Greater Grand Forks community members who cannot afford to operate/own a personal vehicle or who are unable to purchase fares through other local transportation services.

The Voucher program offers personalized solutions to meet the individual or family’s needs. While one applicant may need assistance paying for a taxi service to drive them to work, a parent may need bus tickets for their child. United Way will work with the applicant to determine the best voucher to meet their transportation needs.  
How to Apply:
Vouchers may only be used for getting the applicant to and from their place of employment or school. Vouchers cannot be used for any other circumstance.
