Just last month the National Economic Development and Law Center (NEDLC) issued the findings of what must be the most comprehensive survey to date of low income car ownership (LICO) programs. The study gathered information from 110 different LICO programs across the country working to "improve access to cars for low-wage workers and their families."
Some of these programs buy and sell cars, others just provide financing. Some work with used cars, others with new cars. Some partner with banks and credit unions. Some utilize Individual Development Accounts (IDAs) as part of their programs. The NEDLC report outlines all the different strategies and programs they found. They look at how the programs are structured, how they set eligibility requirements, and where they get their funding from.
This is a tremendous resource for any organization thinking about how to help their clients improve their transportation to work options. Perhaps you'll find an agency listed here that you could partner with. Perhaps you'll get ideas about a new program you could develop.
