  • Follow Me on Pinterest
Are you a U.S. military veteran? Do you suffer from a disability due to your service? There is a lot of help out there for funding improvements to your home to assist you with your comfort and recovery.

The Home Improvements and Structural Alterations (HISA) grant can be used for any home improvement necessary for the continuation of treatment or for disability access to the home and essential lavatory and sanitary facilities. Among the improvements a HISA Grant will cover are:

  • Allowing entrance or exit from veteran’s home;
  • Improving access for use of essential lavatory and   sanitary facilities;
  • Improving access to kitchen and bathroom counters;
  • Handrails and grab rails;
  • Lowered Electrical outlets and switches;
  • Improving paths or driveways;
  • Improving plumbing and electrical work for dialysis patients

A HISA grant is available to veterans who have received a medical determination indicating that improvements and structural alterations are necessary or appropriate for the effective and economical treatment of a disability. A veteran may receive both a HISA grant and either a Special Home Adaptation (SHA) grant (below) or a Specially Adapted Housing (SAH) grant (below).Home improvement benefits up to $4,100 are available to veterans with a service-connected disability, and up to $1,200 is available to veterans with non-service-related disabilities.To apply, the veteran must first have a prescription from a VA or a fee-basis physician. This must include:

  • Specific items required;
  • The diagnosis with medical justification;
  • The veteran’s name, address, SSN, and phone number(s);

In addition, a list of other items regarding the exact work to be completed, costs, and site drawings must be compiled and submitted as well.101 Mobility is glad to help in this process from start to finish.

    I love to seeing this fine HISA program getting as much exposure as possible. My company is proud to have manufactured the best iron handrails right here in the USA since 1946. And there is nothing I enjoy more than informing a veteran that our quality step rails will be a gift, compliments of the American people, in honor of their past service. As simple as this grant is it is one of few that just feels right. Good going USA.RESPECT!

    I have type two diabetes and my getting in and out of a standard tub is limited without help from my wife. I was just in the hospital with cellulites and it seem to be getting better with the antibotics; but nonetheless I was told this would be an on going problem. This doesn’t improve my mobility by any means, and in fact it makes it worse. We currently have a 16 inch high tub and it would be so much better if I could make that from a 16 inch step in tub to a 6 inch step in shower with a seat that is permanetly installed. I already looked at on Company and would like to know how many more estimates I need and what forms do I need. Thank you so much and GOD Bless, Barry

    How long does this process take from the time you get the proper paperwork until I can start working on the shower that would make my life a lot better.

    This is a fabulous gift for the people who have serviced their country – Is there no way this process could be speeded up?

    God Bless and Thank You.
