Lift-To-Work: CAP-HC's Vehicle Program
Reliable transportation can be a barrier for many low-income families. Limited public transportation can create a substantial hardship to those who rely on it to access and/or maintain jobs, trainings, childcare and other services necessary to meet basic daily needs. CAP-HC created the Lift to Work program to respond to the need for reliable transportation in Hennepin County.
Our Programs: Lift to Work currently offers three programs focused on assisting residents of Hennepin county achieve an increased level of stability by overcoming transportation barriers.
- Vehicle Repair Program- This program seeks to address the high cost of vehicle repairs. Hennepin county residents that are below 125% of Federal Poverty Guidelines may receive up to $750 in auto repair assistance, needed to ensure that their vehicle is safe and reliable.
Used Car Shopping Assistance- Limited knowledge of cars and limited budgets can often lead to the purchase of a less than reliable vehicle. This program matches Hennepin County residents (under 200% of Federal Poverty Guidelines) looking to purchase a vehicle with a volunteer who is knowledgeable about auto repair to evaluate the condition of the used car. The volunteer will provide a car inspection and a vehicle history report, free of charge.
Referral Source- CAP-HC will work with clients to identify transportation solutions and provide referrals to local organizations that may be able to meet clients' needs.
