The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) now allows wounded warriors to receive multiple grants for constructing or modifying their homes.
This new rule allows eligible service members to receive up to six special adaptive grants worth up to a total of $101,754 from the VA.
Eligible veterans can now apply for three different types of grants:
- The Specially Adapted Housing Grant (SAH),
- The Special Housing Adaptation Grant (SHA)
- The Temporary Residence Adaptation grant (TRA)
For the SAH Grant: An eligible veteran or servicemember may receive VA grants of not more than $101,754 for fiscal year 2022.
For the SHA Grant: An eligible veteran or servicemember may receive VA grants of not more than 50% of the cost of a specially adapted house, up to the aggregate maximum amount allowable by law. The current maximum grant amount allowable for FY2022 is $20,387.
TRA grants are similar to the SAH and SHA grants, but they may be used to make temporary improvements to a home a veteran is living in temporarily, like a family member's.
