Grants to USA nonprofit organizations to modify or rehabilitate the primary residence of low-income veterans who are living with disabilities. Funding is intended to meet the needs of veterans who require adaptive housing to maintain or regain their independence, as well as to reduce their monthly utilities bills.

A number of America’s veterans who are low-income and living with 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. In partnership with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, HUD intends to use the VHRMP to test a new approach to addressing these challenges in accordance with section 1079 of the Carl Levin and Howard P. “Buck” McKeon National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015 (Pub. L. 113-291, enacted December 19, 2014). The VHRMP pilot will award competitive grants to nonprofit organizations that provide nationwide or statewide programs that primarily serve veterans or low-income individuals. The grants may be used to modify or rehabilitate eligible veterans’ primary residences or to provide grantees’ affiliates with technical, administrative, and training support in connection with those services.
