Specific information
:  Veterans Housing Rehabilitation and Modification Pilot Program (VHRMP)

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. Several America’s veterans who are low-income and have disabilities 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. In partnership with the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, HUD designed the VHRMP to test a new approach to address these challenges in accordance with section 1079 of the Carl Levin and Howard P. “Buck” McKeon National Defense Authorization Act for Fiscal Year 2015 (Pubic Law 113-291, enacted December 19, 2014-"Program Statute"). 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. In the FY 2020 competition for VHRMP grants, HUD will award up to $9,445,980, including $4 million in new funding provided under the Further Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2020 (Public Law 116-94, approved December 20, 2019) and $5,445,980 in remaining VHRMP funding provided under the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2018 (Public Law 115-141) and the Consolidated Appropriations Action, 2019 (Public Law 116-6)

Deadline:
The application deadline is August 18, 2020.
