Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA nonprofit organizations for programs to improve the homes of low-income veterans with disabilities. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take four weeks or more to complete. Funding is intended to support the renovation or adaptation of homes of eligible veterans and to provide grantees’ affiliates with technical, administrative, and training support in connection with those services.

A number of America’s veterans who are low-income and have disabilities are in need of adaptive housing to help them regain or maintain their independence, yet are unable to fund significant home repairs, or are burdened by utility costs. The VHRMP provides competitive grants to nonprofit organizations that provide nationwide or statewide programs that primarily serve veterans and/or low-income individuals. 

Program-Specific Requirements:

  • Each recipient under the VHRMP shall modify or rehabilitate the primary residence of an eligible veteran at no cost to such veteran (including application fees) or at a cost such that the eligible veteran pays no more than 30 percent of his or her income in housing costs during any month. “Housing costs” means the total of any mortgage loan principal and interest, real estate taxes, and insurance for the residence, plus any loan principal and interest or other costs the eligible veteran must pay for the modification and rehabilitation.
  • Each recipient must use one of the following income definitions for all income determinations under VHRMP: annual income as defined at 24 CFR 5.609; or adjusted gross income as defined for purposes of reporting under the IRS Form 1040 series for individual Federal annual income tax purposes.
  • Grant awards under this NOFO will be subject to the Uniform Administrative Requirements, Cost Principles, and Audit Requirements for Federal Awards at 2 CFR Part 200, as may be amended from time to time.
  • Only housing that is the primary residence of an eligible veteran may be modified or rehabilitated under this program, and the eligible veteran or his or her family member must certify in writing that the veteran intends the housing to continue to be his or her primary residence for at least five years after the modification or rehabilitation is completed.
  • Each recipient must establish housing standards which require that all dwelling units rehabilitated and/or modified under the VHRMP program meet all applicable State or local building codes, ordinances, and requirements or, in the absence of a State or local building code, the International Existing Building Code of the International Code Council.
  • Awardees must ensure that all programs and activities undertaken as eligible activities comply with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Fair Housing Act, and their implementing regulations at 24 CFR parts 8 and 100, respectively. The home modifications shall be made accessible upon request of the beneficiary. 

Funding awarded under this NOFO may only be used for the costs of carrying out the following activities:

  1. Modification and rehabilitation of the primary residence of an eligible veteran
  2. Provision of technical, administrative, and training support to an affiliate of the Recipient in connection with the modification and rehabilitation of eligible veterans’ primary residences.
  3. Reasonable administrative activities, not to exceed 10% of the grant amount, including required VHRMP reporting and monitoring.
