Granting Freedom, Veterans with Disabilities
New River Valley Disability Resource Center
Who We Are
The Virginia Housing Development Authority (VHDA) partners with the Virginia Department of Veterans Services in order to make the Granting Freedom program available to Virginia for disabled veterans and service members who sustained a line of duty injury resulting in a service connected disability. The program pays for modifications to make living spaces more accessible. Funds can be used to widen doorways and add ramps to make a home wheel chair accessible, to install grab bars in a bathroom or to make other modifications that help eligible recipients feel more at home. Funding to pay for modifications to houses and apartments is available on a first-serve basis.
A grant of up to $4,000 per residence or rental unit is available for Virginia veterans and service members who sustained a line-of-duty injury resulting in a service-connected disability.
Applications for grants may be made through the New River Valley Disability Resource Center. For a complete list of participating agents,visit the Granting Freedom website.
