Master’s Design Build is pleased to have gone through the requirements and review process to be approved as a builder for the Disability Building Grants for Veterans grant program. The service provides grants to Service members and Military Veterans with disabilities to assist with the purchase or construction or modification of a home. This means that if offered a grant, Master's Design Build is an approved builder meeting all requirements to be able to do the home renovations and construction needed. Considering that our Design and Selections Coordinator, Cheryl Martin, is a Certified Living in Place Professional (CLIPP), and also a Certified Aging in Place Specialist (CAPS), and our Owner, Brian Martin, is a Certified Aging In Place Specialist, our company is uniquely qualified to Design and Build Accessible Housing for injured and disabled veterans.
Currently there are two available grants: the Specially Adapted Housing (SAH) grant and the Special Housing Adaptation (SHA) grant. The details for each grant are below.
The Specially Adapted Housing(SAH) grant is to buy, build or change your long-term home, provided you meet both requirements. First you must own or will own the home. Secondly your service-connected disability must qualify under certain conditions.
When qualified, veterans can get a maximum of $90,364 for the 2020 fiscal year. A fiscal year runs from October 1 through September 30. However, each year there is a cap of 30 recipients, if you qualify, but don’t receive the grant in the current fiscal, you may be able to use this benefit in future years.
The Special Housing Adaptation (SHA) grant is to build, buy or change your permanent home, provided you meet both requirements. First, you or a family member must own, or will own the home. Secondly your service-connected disability must qualify under the set conditions.
