You’ve been there for us when it counted. Now Granting Freedom is here for you, with money to make your home more accessible. Granting Freedom is a grant program for home modifications for disabled veterans or disabled servicemen or women who sustained a line of duty injury resulting in a service connected disability. VHDA partners with the Department of Housing and Community Development, Community Housing Partners and other community groups to make this program available. Watch Video.
Grant funds can be used to widen doorways and add ramps to make a home wheelchair accessible, to install grab bars in a bathroom or to make other modifications recommended by the VA that help eligible recipients feel more at home. Currently, over $1 million of funding is available, first-serve basis, to pay for modifications to houses and apartments.
If you’re interested in applying for grant funds, you’ll need to submit an application and W-9. These forms can be downloaded below. The Granting Freedom application package includes detailed instructions and outlines program specifics.
Completed applications and questions should be submitted to the Grant Administrator.
