Special Home Adaptation (SHA) grants. An SHA grant helps pay to modify a home to meet the needs of a veteran with a certain type and level of disability and who needs assistance with safe mobility around the house. An SHA grant for such modifications can be as high as $12,756.

Note: This SHA grant may be available to a veteran who is or will be temporarily residing in a home owned by a family member, for modifications to that home.

An SHA grant may be available to a veteran with disability compensation for permanent and total service-connected disability, including:

  • Blindness in both eyes (5/200 visual acuity or less).
  • Loss or loss of use of both hands or of arms below the elbow.
