Beaver Builders has worked with veterans and the VA department for several years. With this being the time for cuts in many government programs, I was glad to see the VA announcing the amounts for assistance for veterans under the VA Specialty Adapted Housing Program will remain unchanged in fiscal year 2011 from the fiscal year 2010 amounts. These are grants, not loans, ranging from $2,000 to $63,780. More information can be found at http://www.benefits.va.gov/homeloans/
The best advice I can give to anyone looking to work with the VA grant programs is to do their homework. There are a lot of guidelines for these grants but once you have read through them, our experience is they are fairly straight forward. It’s important to remember this is a government program and there are occasional delays. By anticipating and adapting your schedule for possible delays, it will make the process a lot smoother for all involved.
