The government is currently offering grants up to $45,000 per vehicle for the purpose of ensuring continued service to those with reduced mobility. This grant is on a competitive basis with a 50% co-contribution required from applicants to offset the cost of purchasing and modifying a new wheelchair accessible taxi.
With $21 Million dollars committed to support the modernisation & expansion of wheelchair accessible taxi’s in Queensland, now is the time to think about getting some of this money.
So if you find that Covoid-19 is reducing your time on the road then this is probably a great time for you to think about applying for government business grants while you’re vehicle is having down time.
Applications are on a competitive basis including: age of the vehicle being replaced and other criteria.
Under the funding, wheelchair accessible taxis aged eight years or older will be eligible for 50 per cent funding for gradual vehicle replacement from 2019 – 2020 through to 2022- 2023.
