Veterans may be eligible for grant money under a variety of federal programs. However, not all veterans are eligible for every grant program, according to Benefits.gov.
Often, the funds a veteran qualifies for must be used according to strict guidelines. For example, disabled veterans may be eligible for grants that can only be put toward the purchase of an automobile and adaptive equipment or only toward adapting a residence to accommodate their condition. Other grants, such as per diem grants for homeless veterans, are not designated for specific kinds of purchases but are subject to other guidelines, according to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs website.
