Grant Description
Grants to USA nonprofit organizations for programs to improve the homes of low-income veterans with disabilities. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take four weeks or more to complete. Funding is intended to support the renovation or adaptation of homes of eligible veterans and to provide grantees’ affiliates with technical, administrative, and training support in connection with those services.

A number of America’s veterans who are low-income and have disabilities are in need of adaptive housing to help them regain or maintain their independence, are unable to fund significant home repairs, or are burdened by utility costs. The VHRMP provides competitive grants to nonprofit organizations that provide nationwide or statewide programs that primarily serve veterans and/or low-income individuals.
