Housing Improvement Act for Disabled Veterans Signed into Law

A bill that would increase funding and access to a program that allows disabled veterans to modify their homes was recently signed into law.

According to an article published by Stars and Stripes, “The Ryan Kules and Paul Benne Specially Adaptive Housing Improvement Act of 2019, H.R. 3504, updates a Department of Veterans Affairs program that provides money for veterans with certain permanent, service-connected disabilities, with the most common being bilateral amputees and paralyzed veterans. The new law increases the funding available to those 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.”
