VA RIN: 2900-AP39 Publication ID: Fall 2016 
Title: Automotive Adaptive Equipment Allowance  
Abstract:

This rule proposes to amend the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) regulations governing the provision of a monetary allowance to certain veterans and members of the Armed Forces who require automobile adaptive equipment. The automobile adaptive equipment allowance provides funds for a range of adaptive equipment that helps veterans enter, exit, and/or operate their vehicle, such as wheelchair lifts, kneeling systems, raised doors and floors, hand controls, and digital driving systems. This proposed rule would establish in regulation a methodology to calculate the amount of the monetary allowance for automobile adaptive equipment, based on industry standards and our experience administering this program.
