The Loan Guaranty Service (LGY), which is an office of the Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA), Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), is announcing the availability of funds for the Specially Adapted Housing Assistive Technology (SAHAT) Grant Program.
The objective of the grant is to encourage
the development of new assistive technologies for specially adapted housing.
Veterans Affairs acknowledges there are many emerging technologies that could improve home adaptations or otherwise enhance a Veteran’s or Servicemember’s ability to live independently.
Therefore, VA has defined ‘‘new assistive technology’’ as an advancement the Secretary determines could aid or enhance the ability of a Veteran or Servicemember to live in an adapted home.
SAHAT funding does not support the construction or modification of residential dwellings for accessibility.
Veterans and Servicemembers interested in receiving assistance to adapt a home are encouraged to contact their local Veterans Affairs Regional Benefits Office, Regional Loan Center, or Medical Center for more information, or visit:http://www.benefits.va.gov/homeloans/adaptedhousing.asp
