The Department of Veterans Affairs are offering housing grants for U.S disabled veterans. They are currently serving military members with qualifying service-connected disabilities.
The two best-known programs are: VA Specially Adapted Housing Grant (VA SAH) and VA Special Housing Adaptation Grant (VA SHA). These both are planning to help disabled veterans with housing; buy, build, and/or adapt a home that will be the veteran’s primary residence.
Unlike VA home loans, these grants are not offered through a participating VA lender. However, they are directly provided by the Department of Veterans Affairs. Furthermore, these grants are not a part of the VA home loan program, they are entirely different from VA loans.
The veterans applying for these grants must fulfil the eligibility criteria, it is not open to all the disabled U.S veterans.

- Loss of both legs.

WHAT VA SHA provides?
VA SHA grants operate in several ways including, disabled veterans help with housing:
- adjust or accommodate an existing home the veteran (or a family member) already owns where the veteran lives as the primary residence.
- adjust or accommodate a home the Veteran or family member intends to purchase where the veteran intends to live as the primary residence.
- Help a Veteran purchase an “already adapted” home where the veteran will live as the primary residence.
Therefore, we are also providing residences for veterans, more specifically for disabled veterans. Soldiers of America is already providing houses, medical aids, financial aids and much more. Moreover, we are still giving our best to fulfill their needs.
