What Is a Special Housing Adaptation Grant?
The Special Housing Adaptation (SHA) grant can be used to increase your mobility throughout your residence. The current maximum grant amount is $20,215. The maximum grant amount adjusts annually, so please visit the website https://www.benefits.va.gov/homeloans/adaptedhousing.asp. Veterans and service members with specific service-connected disabilities may be eligible. You must be entitled to disability compensation due to one of the following:
• Anatomical loss or loss of use of both hands or arms below the elbow
• Severe burn injury
• Certain respiratory or breathing injuries
If you are eligible for an SAH, SHA, or a Veteran Readiness and Employment Independent Living home adaptation grant, you can use money from your grant up to 6 different times. Depending on your individual needs, you may use as much or as little of your grant as you need this year. If you do not use the full grant amount, you can use more money from the grant in future years.
