Disabled Veterans Receive Home Improvement Grant Increase

Posted:

If you are a disabled veteran, be aware that the US government wants to help you to live more comfortably in your home and stands ready to subsidize those improvements to your home which would help you be able to do so.

Under H.R. 1293, the Disabled Veterans Home Improvement and Structural Alteration Grant Increase Act of 2009, disabled veterans are entitled to the following reimbursements for home improvements and structural alterations made to their homes which would accommodate their disabilities:

Home Improvement and Structural Alteration Grant Increases Your Benefits

Under the 2009 increase, disabled veterans entitlements for those home improvements made to accommodate their disabilities are substantially larger, as follows:

(1) From $4,100 to $6,800 is the amount authorized to be paid by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for improvements and structural alterations for homes of veterans with service-connected disabilities of 50% or more

(2) From $1,200 to $2,000 is the amount authorized for such purpose for veterans with service-connected disabilities of less than 50%, and certain other veterans.

The Bill sponsor was Representative Stephen Byer (R-IN4). All veterans, especially those with disabilities, are entitled to live as comfortably as possible upon their return from service to their country. The Disabled Veterans Home Improvement and Structural Alteration Grant Increase Act of 2009 is just one more way a grateful country says thank you for your service.
