A number of America’s low-income veterans with disabilities are in need of adaptive housing to help them regain or maintain their independence.
In partnership with the U. S. Department of Veterans Affairs, the U. S. Department of Housing and Urban Development intends to address these challenges
in accordance with section 1079 of the Carl Levin and Howard P.
“Buck” McKeon National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015 (Public Law 113-291, §1079, enacted December 19, 2014, as amended by Public Law 114-92, §1081(b)(4), November 25, 2015) by awarding competitive grants of up to $1 million each to nonprofit organizations that provide nationwide or statewide programs that primarily serve veterans and/or low-income individuals.
The grants may be used to modify or rehabilitate eligible veterans’ primary residences or to provide grantees’ affiliates with technical, administrative, and training support in connection with those services.
