Have you considered an internship, or working on an open source project?

Have you made your intentions known to management? Most of my co-workers don't have formal credentials for programming. They transferred in from other non-technical departments. Several were actually sent out for technical training AFTER getting their positions. A desire to learn and a reputation for competence goes far.
Do you see things in your current job that could be automated? I must have couple dozen little apps (100-10000 lines) that do simple little tasks (monitor log files, do database dumps, generate Google maps and so on). Maybe you could propose writing an app that would boost your own productivity (it would be a good idea to get a prototype working BEFORE you propose it, lest you bite off more than you can chew!). If you are successful with that, your managers may move you in the programming direction. If they don't, you have the start of a software portfolio that you can show prospective employers.
