Advocacy Groups Urge Congress to Approve Housing Grants for Disabled Veterans

Veterans advocacy groups are urging lawmakers to hasten a bill that would extend grants to disabled veterans to modify their properties in order to meet their physical needs.

According to an article published by Stars and Stripes, “The Ryan Kules and Paul Benne Specially Adaptive Housing Improvement Act of 2019 provide money for veterans with certain permanent, service-connected disabilities, with the most common being bilateral amputees and paralyzed veterans. The bill increases the funding available to these veterans from about $85,000 to about $98,000. It also extends the benefit to blind veterans and allows beneficiaries to access the funding up to six times instead of three.”
