Drive KC to Work
Drive KC to Work is a program offered in partnership with Holy Rosary Credit Union. This program makes low-interest loans to eligible candidates to purchase a used car to maintain employment. These loans are intended for people who are experiencing employment-related transportation challenges, including:
- Working at a job that has no public transportation nearby.
- Difficult or long commute on public transportation to get to work, to get children to and from day care, and to take care of other family needs.
- Not being able to accept opportunities to make more money – such as taking alternate shifts – because of limited public transportation.
Research has shown that a car increases a person’s take-home pay an average of 41%.
This is not a “band-aid” program, nor is it a hand-out. Eligible candidates must pay for their car using the low-interest loans that are available from the program and be able to maintain all expenses associated with owning a car including gasoline, insurance and repairs as necessary.
Drive KC to Work is a multi-step program designed to ensure that its participants are successful car owners, thereby increasing their chances for employment. Applicants are screened to ensure that they can afford the car, plus insurance and other typical costs. For more information call Angela Jonas at 816-231-0984.
