By Car Program

LCCAA is accepting applications for the By Car Program for 2015.  The program assists individual with the purchase of a vehicle to get to work or school by matching their earned income.  Matching funds are provided by a grant from the Ohio Finance Fund at a rate of 2 to 1 up to $3,999.  Participants take financial literacy courses as well as learning the costs of owning a vehicle and its proper maintenance. LCCAA uses agency relationships to ensure participants purchase quality vehicles.

New this year, LCCAA is partnering with Lorain County OhioMeans Jobs to identify individuals who are seeking assistance with the purchase of a vehicle.  "Individuals who participate in OhioMeans Jobs programs may receive an incentive which can be applied towards the purchase of a vehicle," Prihoda said. To download the By Car application click on the Forms and Documents above. Applications can be dropped off at LCCAA administrative offices located at 506 Broadway Avenue in Lorain.
