Grants of up to $30,000 to USA nonprofit and tribal housing authorities to develop affordable housing for veterans located in rural areas. Funding may be used for construction projects to provide temporary and permanent housing solutions for low-income veterans.

Funding is intended to support local nonprofit housing development organizations that meet or help meet the affordable housing needs of veterans in rural areas. Work supported under this grant program must be bricks‐and‐mortar projects that assist low‐income, elderly and disabled veterans with home repair and rehab needs, support homeless veterans, help veterans become homeowners, and/or secure affordable rental housing.

GRANTS can be used to provide both temporary and permanent housing for veterans, depending on the local needs of the community. HAC will coordinate with Home Depot volunteers and THDF on volunteer opportunities especially around home repair and rehab.

Suggestions for grants include but are not limited to:

- Home repair
- Homeownership
- Multi‐family rental development and preservation
