VA HOUSING GRANTS FOR DISABLED VETERANS

https://www.benefits.va.gov/homeloans/adaptedhousing.asp

VA provides grants to Servicemembers and Veterans with certain permanent and total service-connected disabilities to help purchase or construct an adapted home, or modify an existing home to accommodate a disability. Two grant programs exist: the Specially Adapted Housing (SAH) grant and the Special Housing Adaptation (SHA) grant.

SPECIALLY ADAPTED HOUSING (SAH) GRANT

SAH grants help Veterans with certain service-connected disabilities live independently in a barrier-free environment. SAH grants can be used in one of the following ways:

  • Construct a specially adapted home on land to be acquired

  • Build a home on land already owned if it is suitable for specially adapted housing

  • Remodel an existing home if it can be made suitable for specially adapted housing

  • Apply the grant against the unpaid principal mortgage balance of an adapted home already acquired without the assistance of a VA grant

  • View and share VA’s SHA infographic to help spread the word

SPECIAL HOUSING ADAPTATION (SHA) GRANT

SHA grants help Veterans with certain service-connected disabilities adapt or purchase a home to accommodate the disability. You can use SHA grants in one of the following ways:

  • Adapt an existing home the Veteran or a family member already owns in which the Veteran lives

  • Adapt a home the Veteran or family member intends to purchase in which the Veteran will live

  • Help a Veteran purchase a home already adapted in which the Veteran will live

ELIGIBILITY

If you are a Servicemember or Veteran with a permanent and total service-connected disability, you may be entitled to a Specially Adapted Housing (SAH) grant or a Special Housing Adaptation (SHA) grant. The table below provides an overview of VA’s housing grant programs for Veterans with certain service-connected disabilities.
