BFA LLC. is proud to be on the Department of Veteran Affairs Contractor List for the State of Michigan. We have worked with disabled Veteran clients, whom have received Housing Grants from the VA. The purpose of the Housing grants are to enhance disabled Veterans quality of life by providing a safe, barrier free home, where they can live as independently as they can.
Through our experience, many of our Veteran clients have no knowledge that they have these grants available to them. And, much to our surprise, we found it difficult to find detailed explanations of their options. Thankfully, we found a document from Julian Gray Associates , where Cindy S. Alvear, clearly explained the grants available and the specifications to qualify for them.
The VA offers a few different Housing Grants:
Specially Adapted Housing Grant (SAH)
- Veteran may receive up to $67,555 for accessible home modifications.

Home Improvement and Structural Assistance (HISA)
- Veteran may receive $2,000 to $6,800 for accessible home modifications.
- Veterans qualify if disabled as a result of service related or non service related conditions.
- Requires a perscription from VA facility or physician.
- " A HISA grant is available to veterans who have received a medical determination indicating that improvements and structural alterations are necessary or appropriate for the effective and economical treatment of a disability. The HISA program does not cover major modifications that are generally covered by the SAH grant program. For instance, handrails installed in showers are covered under HISA, while widening a bathroom doorway is not. A veteran may receive both a HISA grant and either a Special Home Adaptation (SHA) grant or a Specially Adapted Housing (SAH) grant."
