You’ve valiantly served in the military and as a result become disabled. So what are your options if you want to remain in your own home? The good news is that the United States Department of Veterans affairs has grants available that you can apply for to make your home or build a new home that will make it so you can get around your own home and live as independently as possible. The current maximum is $77,307 and you can use it to help pay for adaptations to your home if you’re a Veteran with specific service-connected physical disabilities. For more information about eligibility for VA grants visit the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.
