Ohio Car Purchasing Program

Ohio is committed to helping young people enrolled in postsecondary education and training programs succeed and thrive. Because buying a first car is a big step forward, the state of Ohio is offering financial assistance to help students make this purchase. This funding is to help those who do not own a car and rely on public transportation or friends to get to school and work; it is intended to help students navigate their responsibilities and achieve their personal, academic, and career goals.

  • Eligible students must be OH ETV recipients currently enrolled in a postsecondary program.
  • The program is time-limited and will assist students with purchasing their first car between February 1 – September 30, 2022.
  • Funding is limited; financial assistance is offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
  • To receive funding for the purchase of a car, students must comply with program requirements, including but not limited to the submission of all required documentation.
