Car Ownership Programs Helping People With Low Incomes to Purchase New Vehicles

[ad_1] (Jun. 16th, 2009) – In the today’s transportation obsessed economy, a large majority of all the workers or employees must drive or be driven to their jobs, in order to earn a living, and why not, in order just to survive in this so called modern world. Yet, one of the most difficult purchases for a low-income family must be represented by a car. Because of the poor public transportation in most of the cities and towns, car ownership represents one of the most important pieces in the employment puzzle. While most of the residential spaces are out of the town, workers of all kinds and types will need to have a car in order to get in time to their offices, which are mostly located in the center of the “urban jungle”.

So, not owning a car can represent an inconvenient factor for an individual or for a family. A normal family in the United States will need to have at least one car, if not two (two is the standard and required number of cars for an average family). But, what can be done for the low income families and low income individuals who are not able to buy at least one car that can help them in getting and maintaining a job?

One of the answers can come from the federal and state aid organizations. People are often opting to donate their used cars to these governmental institutions, rather then selling them for marginal profits as it is used to do. All these car donations are helping the charity programs to raise money and also provide reliable transportation facilities to the low income families and individuals. This is not a business, but more like a helping-hand given by the United States government and accredited institutions to the persons who are in a desperate need for a car. A person cannot buy a donated car unless he or she meets the specific requirements pertaining to the fiscal situation.

In the case the car donation charity will not suit your desired need – There will be many other low-income car ownership programs. Each and every of these programs can be suitable and helpful for a segment of the population, all of them having the capability of providing the low-income families to purchase their dreamed cars for the exact purpose of retaining employment.

Donated cars have been sold and used starting from the year of 1996, when the Welfare Reform Law has passed. This law has suffered several small modifications in 2005, 2006 and 2007, offering now opportunities and possibilities to all the types of low-income families.

There are also private car ownership programs, which are offering low-income loans on a constant basis. Donated cars can be also bought from the private companies, where individuals and families can find cars at reasonable prices. In addition, there are other companies which are selling brand new cars at lower prices, due to the support from the state and governmental institutions. Also, some of the standard Car Loan or Car Lease companies are feeling comfortable to offer low-income financing to the individuals or families in need. is an online resource dedicated to providing information to help increase private automobile ownership for individuals and families earning low wages and incomes. By providing this service we hope to help support their ability to find and retain quality employment.
