In order to be considered for a Workers on Wheels vehicle, applicants must apply through their caseworker or representative at a participating member agency such as Department of Human Services (Alcona, Alpena, Antrim, Benzie, Charlevoix, Cheboygan, Crawford, Emmett, Grand Traverse, Kalkaska, Leelanau, Missaukee, Montmorency, Ogemaw, Oscoda, Otsego, Presque Isle, Roscommon, Wexford are currently participating).
Basic eligibility requirements are an ability to provide verification of full time employment (30 hrs per week or more) with preference given to families with dependent children in the home. Income level, driving history and vehicle ownership checks are run by the potential sponsor. Applications are then brought to the WOW committee for consideration.
Vehicles are awarded within the communities they were donated from and are prioritized to candidates demonstrating greatest need and/or absence of reasonable access to alternate means of transportation.
