National Organization for Vehicle Accessibility

The National Organization for Vehicle Accessibility (NOVA) believes every individual has the right to personal mobility, with all aspects of society and the built infrastructure accessible, so all people can live fulfilling, active lives. A 501(c)(3) public charity, NOVA provides programs, products and services that enhance the lives of the more than 22 million Americans and others worldwide with mobility impairments and disabilities. As such, the organization is deeply involved in educating, communicating and advocating on behalf of universal mobility, accessibility, diversity and inclusion, which is why it is creating the Alliance for Adaptive Mobility & Accessibility (a2ma).  Please be on the lookout for the new NOVA/A2MA website coming soon (, with the “Rise Above” caption in remembrance of Ralph Braun, our founder.

NOVA’s Ralph Braun Grant Program provides vehicle accessibility and modification grants to qualified grant applicants throughout the United States and Canada in need of financial assistance.
