NOVA is in the process of dissolution as a result of circumstances worsened by the pandemic. Therefore, it will no longer be accepting applications or awarding grants.
The National Organization for Vehicle Accessibility values all of our partners. A special thanks goes to the following corporations for their contributions and ongoing support:
BraunAbility Employee Payroll Deduction Program
Ralph Braun fostered a culture of giving within his company, which is evident from the many BraunAbility employees who participate in the company’s payroll deduction program benfiting NOVA. As the world leader in mobility with over 40 years of experience, BraunAbility® understands what you’re looking for in wheelchair vehicles, wheelchair lifts and mobility products. Why? Because we were founded by a man who needed that mobility for himself. Ralph Braun built his company on a commitment to quality, safety, and innovation. He also believed in giving his customers the peace of mind that wherever their travels take them, there’s an experienced mobility professional close by. Put your trust in the BraunAbility® name and our nationwide dealer network. We’re committed to get you where you want to go — today and tomorrow.
National Mobility Equipment Dealers Associaton – NMEDA
NMEDA promotes awareness of adaptive transportation solutions available to persons with disabilities, their families and their caregivers. Through the use of mobility equipment, our members are able to transform the lives of those living with disabilities and grant each of their clients added independence and the ability to get behind the wheel of their own wheelchair accessible vehicle.
Q’Straint and Sure-Lok are leading manufacturers of wheelchair passenger safety solutions. With over 50 years of combined experience, both companies have remained focused on one vision: to develop the world’s most effective wheelchair passenger safety solutions for public and private transportation. For the transit industry, we feature the Q’POD, the first fully integrated forward-facing wheelchair securement station. We also offer the new Quantum: the first fully automatic, rear-facing wheelchair securement station that allows wheelchair and scooter passengers to self-secure—all in under 25 seconds—without requiring the driver to leave their seat to assist.
The National Organization for Vehicle Accessibility Proudly Supports Members of the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association
NMEDA-QAP is the branded name of the National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association’s quality assurance program that is the only one of its kind in the automotive mobility industry. With over three million people in North America using wheelchairs and other mobility aids, QAP is the only program that offers the assurance of safe and reliable transportation through structured and documented quality assessment. QAP requires compliance with a set of rules and guidelines established to provide consistency of quality and verification to all applicable federal motor vehicle safety standards. All NMEDA members and associates communicate regularly to establish best practices and continuously improve the mobility industry. While consumers often have a choice of where to buy or have services provided, take the guesswork out of the equation and insist on QAP.
