The purpose of the Veterans Housing Rehabilitation and Modification (VHRM) pilot program is to explore the potential benefits of awarding grants to nonprofit organizations to rehabilitate and modify the primary residence of veterans who are low-income and living with disabilities. The funds made available under this program will be awarded competitively.
A number of America’s veterans who are low-income and living with disabilities are in need of adaptive housing to help them regain or maintain their independence, are unable to fund significant home repairs, or are burdened by utility costs. In partnership with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, HUD intends to use the VHRM pilot to test a new approach to addressing these challenges in accordance with section 1079 of the Carl Levin and Howard P. “Buck” McKeon National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015 (Pub. L. 113-291, enacted December 19, 2014). The VHRM pilot will award competitive grants to nonprofit organizations that provide nationwide or statewide programs that primarily serve veterans 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.
Today's publication establishes the funding criteria for the FY 2018 Veterans Housing Rehabilitation and Modification (VHRM) pilot program.
