Vehicle Repair

The RPC’s Vehicle Repair program provides income-eligible households, who meet program criteria, assistance for repairs to their vehicle to maintain employment and/or support full-time students to maintain the ability to pursue education to support career pathways.

The objective of the program is to support low-income households in Champaign County to maintain independent means of transportation to assist with employment and career pathways. When funding is available and households meet the required eligibility, households will be provided assistance to address vehicle repairs to maintain a functioning vehicle for transportation.

*Vehicle must be year 2000 or newer to be considered for assistance.

Amount of assistance per household will not exceed $1,000. If the repair exceeds the CSGB assistance maximum, the repair bill must be paid down to $1,000 before CSBG assistance would be awarded.

Households will be limited to receiving assistance only one time in a two-year period.

To request an application, contact Wayne Duke at 217-819-4080.
