Description of Program
NHCO’s Transportation Assistance program (formerly Community Auto) has expanded and now offers several ways to help local people in need meet and overcome transportation challenges.
As funds allow, NHCO can provide one-time assistance for Vehicle Ownership or Transportation expenses to those who are at or below 150% of the poverty level and reside in NHCO’s service area of northern Allegheny County outside of the City of Pittsburgh.
Vehicle Ownership Expenses
insurance payment to avoid break in coverage
vehicle payment to avoid repossession
CONNECT cards for public transportation
Ride share for job interview, to get to a job, or other necessary appointment.
When funds allow, NHCO may match funds of up to $1,000 for those planning to purchase a vehicle that is needed to get to work.
NHCO still accepts donated vehicles, now through VehiclesforCharity.org. They are sold at auction and all proceeds after fees are used to fund our Transportatation Assistance program.
