Granting Freedom is a grant program for home modifications for disabled veterans or disabled servicemen or women who sustained a line of duty injury resulting in a service connected disability. The Virginia Housing Development Authority (VHDA) is partnering with the Virginia Department of Veterans Services to make this program available.
Grant funds can be used to widen doorways and add ramps to make a home wheelchair accessible, to install grab bars in a bathroom or to make other modifications recommended by the VA that help eligible recipients feel more at home. Currently, over $1 million of funding is available, first-serve basis, to pay for modifications to houses and apartments.
