HWC is a Veteran Owned Business
Veterans Administration - Home Improvement and Structural Alterations (HISA) And Specially Adapted Housing (SAH) Programs
HWC is authorized by the VA to do home improvement modifications for U.S. Veterans who have been qualified by the VA for grants on specific projects in their home.
Many remodeling companies choose to not do these projects because most often, the VA payment for the project is a number of weeks following the completion of the entire job and they cannot certify to the VA that all labor and products have already been paid for - before they receive any payment at all.
HWC has the financial strength to complete even the largest VA projects and comply with the long payment delay required by the VA program.
You MAY Be Eligible for a Grant
The VA provides home improvement to qualified veterans through its Home improvement and Structural Alterations program, called HISA. Applying for HISA requires completion of this VA Application for Assistance (Form 10-0103 Jun 2015). You should preview the VA HISA program details here.
The VA also provides larger grants to Service members and Veterans with certain permanent and total service-connected disabilities to help purchase or construct an adapted home, or modify an existing home to accommodate a disability. Two grant programs exist: the Specially Adapted Housing (SAH) grant and the Special Housing Adaptation (SHA) grant.
Veterans need to contact the VA to determine their eligibility and to apply for grant funding to make improvements to their homes. Eligibility requirements are also listed on the VA web site.
We suggest that you visit the VA web site and then talk with a VA representative about these programs. Once you have, here is the VA Grant Application (Form 26-455 Feb 2012). (If you need a PDF Reader, you can click on the button below.)
You can also apply to the VA online.
Once you have been notified by the VA that you have qualified for a grant, HWC handles almost all of the rest of the paperwork for you!
