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 and servicemembers who sustained a line of duty injury resulting in a service connected disability. VHDA is pleased to partner with the Virginia Department of Veterans Services to make this program available.
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.
