Housing Grants for Disabled Veterans

 

 

 

If you are service connected disabled you may be eligible for a grant up to $81,080* to purchase, build, modify, or pay down an existing mortgage on a property previously modified.

*As of 2017  

Certain Servicemembers and Veterans with service-connected disabilities may be entitled to a housing grant from VA to help build a new specially adapted house, to adapt a home they already own, or buy a house and modify it to meet their disability-related requirements. Eligible Veterans or Servicemembers may now receive up to three grants, with the total dollar amount of the grants not to exceed the maximum allowable. Previous grant recipients who had received assistance of less than the current maximum allowable may be eligible for an additional grant.
