The second grant, the SHA, adapts an existing home a family member or the veteran already owns, adapts a home the veteran intends to purchase and live in, or helps a veteran purchase an already adapted home.

Eldercare has home modification and repair grants available for low-income seniors. These modifications may be necessary for the elderly person to adapt his living space to meet the needs of his physical limitations so he can continue to live safely and independently.
