VA Announces Specially Adapted Housing Grant Amounts for 2012

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Loan Guaranty Service announced that Specially Adapted Housing (SAH) grant amounts will remain unchanged in fiscal year 2012.  Pursuant to the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008, VA adopted a private-sector residential home cost-of-construction index, the Turner Building Cost Index (TBCI), to determine whether to increase certain SAH grant amounts each year.  The aggregate amount of assistance available for SAH grants will be $12,756 during fiscal year 2012.

Veterans or servicemembers who have specific service-connected disabilities may be entitled to a grant from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for the purpose of constructing an adapted home or modifying an existing home to meet their adaptive needs.  The goal of the Specially Adapted Housing (SAH) Grant Program is to provide a barrier-free living environment that affords the veterans or servicemembers a level of independent living he or she may not normally enjoy.
