Car Repair Grant

Reducing the Cost Burden of Transportation

Due to a large demand, we have temporarily closed the application. Please check back for updates.

The Car Repair Grant offers help to households who have been financially impacted by COVID-19 and are in need of car repairs or maintenance. We provide one-time grants to households who rely on their car to continue working or to get back into the workforce.

Households who have been approved for a car repair grant will be required to get an estimate from their preferred auto repair shop and pay for the estimate. Once the estimate is approved and all required paperwork submitted, repairs can be completed and grant funds of up to $1,000 will be paid directly to the auto repair shop.

For more information about the Car Repair Program, please send us an email at CarRepair@caprw.org or call us at 651-603-5880 and choose extension 5.
