Adaptive Housing: Empowering Wounded Warriors - The Power of GRANTS.

Unlocking Accessibility and Independence for Veterans

The VA offers grants to support service members and veterans who have been disabled during their military service. These grants are specifically designed to assist in creating barrier-free living environments that promote independent living. If you or a loved one require housing adaptations, the VA has three types of grants available:

Special Housing Adaptation (SHA) Grant:

The Special Housing Adaptation (SHA) Grant is a remarkable program designed to provide assistance and support to our nation's wounded warriors. This grant, administered by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), aims to help disabled veterans by making necessary modifications to their homes, ensuring they have a safe, accessible, and comfortable living environment.

For veterans who have sustained significant service-related disabilities, the SHA Grant offers a lifeline in the form of financial assistance to adapt their homes to meet their unique needs. The grant can be used to make a variety of modifications, such as installing ramps, widening doorways, adding accessible bathrooms, or making other necessary changes to accommodate disabilities.

The SHA Grant plays a vital role in enabling wounded warriors to regain their independence and improve their quality of life. By removing physical barriers within their homes, veterans can navigate their living spaces more easily, enhancing their mobility and overall well-being. These adaptations not only provide practical solutions but also promote a sense of empowerment and freedom for veterans who have sacrificed so much for our country.

It is crucial for veterans and their families to be aware of the resources available to them through the SHA Grant. If you or a loved one is a disabled veteran in need of home modifications, reaching out to professionals with experience in assisting veterans, such as Amanda Allen, can be a valuable step towards accessing the support and information you need.

  • Up to $20,215* available

  • Designed to increase mobility throughout the home

Specially Adapted Housing (SAH) Grant:

The Specially Adapted Housing (SAH) Grant is a transformative program designed to provide disabled veterans with the opportunity to live independently and comfortably in homes tailored to their specific needs. Administered by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), the SAH Grant aims to empower veterans by facilitating the construction or modification of housing that accommodates their disabilities.

For veterans who have suffered severe service-related disabilities, the SAH Grant offers a lifeline in the form of financial assistance to build or renovate homes that address their unique challenges. The grant can be used to create customized features and modifications, such as wheelchair ramps, widened doorways, accessible bathrooms, and other adaptations that promote mobility, safety, and convenience.

The SAH Grant serves as a catalyst for veterans to reclaim their independence and enhance their quality of life. By providing the means to customize their living spaces, veterans gain a greater sense of control and freedom, enabling them to navigate their homes with ease and dignity. These adaptations not only improve daily functionality but also foster a sense of empowerment, allowing veterans to thrive in their own environment.

  • Up to $100,896* available

  • Helps veterans with mobility challenges due to blindness or loss of use of hands or arms

Temporary Residence Adaptation (TRA) Grant:

The Temporary Residence Adaptation (TRA) Grant is a vital program that aims to support veterans during transitional periods by providing funding for temporary housing modifications. This grant, administered by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), recognizes the unique challenges faced by veterans and their families when adjusting to new living arrangements.

When veterans are in the process of relocating or undergoing significant life changes, such as medical treatments or rehabilitation, the TRA Grant offers crucial financial assistance to adapt temporary residences to their specific needs. This ensures that veterans can maintain a comfortable and accessible living environment during these transitional periods.

The TRA Grant can be used to make necessary adaptations to temporary housing, such as installing grab bars, ramps, or wider doorways to facilitate mobility and enhance safety. These modifications are particularly important for veterans with disabilities or mobility limitations, as they provide the necessary support to navigate and carry out daily activities effectively.

By providing veterans with the means to modify their temporary residences, the TRA Grant promotes a smoother transition and helps alleviate some of the stress associated with temporary living arrangements. It recognizes the importance of maintaining a sense of independence and dignity during times of change, enabling veterans to focus on their well-being and rehabilitation.

  • Available to eligible veterans and seriously injured active duty service members temporarily living in a family-owned home

  • SHA recipients receive $7,256*, and SAH recipients receive $40,637*

These grants aim to provide wounded warriors with a barrier-free living environment, enhancing their independence. The grant amounts may be adjusted annually to reflect construction costs. For more information on grants and how to apply, please visit:
