Good News Moutaineer Garage provides vehicles to families who need transportation to get off public assistance.
To receive a vehicle, a family must be referred by their DHHR case manager with approval by the regional supervisor. When GNMG receives the referral, a staff person will contact the family to explain the program and determine what kind of vehicle best meets their transportation needs. Before a family can be placed in a vehicle, they must provide proof of liability insurance and participate in GNMG's maintenance/ car care training.
Eligibility Requirements - To be eligible for a referral a family must:
- Be receiving Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) benefits
- Families receiving foodstamps or medical benefits only will not qualify.
- Be actively participating in the West Virginia WORKS program
- Have no access to other transportation
