HISA ImprovementsWhat is HISA?

The HISA is the Home Improvements and Structural Alterations program administered by the Veteranís Administration. The Veteranís Administration, through the HISA, provides grants to Veterans for ďmedically necessary improvements and/or structural improvementsĒ to Veteranís homes.

HISA grants are available to those Veterans who require improvements or modifications for the necessary continuation of the treatment of his/her disability and/or to provide access to the home or to essential lavatory and sanitary facilities. Veterans with service-connected conditions or non-service-connected conditions are eligible for medically necessary HISA grants.
