This article focuses on the adapted housing assistance from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Three different VA programs cover adaptive housing for veterans. The first benefit is Specially Adapted Housing for veterans who have service-connected disabilities due to military service, entitling them to compensation for permanent and total disability due to the loss or loss of use of both lower extremities, such as to preclude locomotion without the aid of braces, crutches, canes, or a wheelchair. The final VA adaptive grant is Home Improvements and Structural Alterations.
