Keys to Success

What is Keys to success?

Keys to Success program is designed to assist individuals in purchasing a vehicle to make it to and from work. Good News Mountaineer Garage staff support applicants through the process of applying for a loan, learning about credit and purchasing a vehicle. The Keys to Success program focuses on 3 main areas to assist individuals in successfully purchasing a vehicle:

  1. Reduced Purchase Price of the Vehicle: In 2020, the West Virginia Legislature passed a new law providing state tax credits to dealers and private parties who provide vehicles to our program. These tax credits allow us to help participants purchase a used vehicle through a cooperating dealer, or from us, at a greatly reduced price.

  2. Reduced Vehicle Financing: We have a partnership with Element Federal Credit Union which provides the participant with very low rate financing for the purchase of a vehicle (no more than 6 to 8% per year). This will save the participant a considerable amount of money in loan costs.

  3. Financial Education: We will provide financial training and counseling throughout the period of the participant’s loan. This will empower participants to handle their finances successfully.
