Veterans Housing, Rehabilitation and Modification Pilot Program (VHRMP), Due August 24

The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) Community Planning and Development has released a new funding opportunity.

Purpose

The purpose of the Veterans Housing Rehabilitation and Modification Pilot Program (VHRMP) is to explore the potential benefits of awarding grants to nonprofit organizations to rehabilitate and modify the primary residence of veterans who are low-income and have disabilities.

The funds made available under this program will be awarded competitively, on behalf of America’s veterans who are low-income, have disabilities, and are in need of adaptive housing to help them regain or maintain their independence, are unable to fund significant home repairs, or are burdened by utility costs. The VHRMP provides competitive grants of up to $1 million each to nonprofit organizations that provide nationwide or statewide programs that primarily serve veterans and/or low-income individuals.

The grants may be used to modify or rehabilitate eligible veterans’ primary residences or to provide grantees’ affiliates with technical, administrative, and training support in connection with those services. This NOFO offers Promise Zones, Historically Black College Universities, Climate Change, and Environmental Justice preference points.
