HISA Limitations

tubHere at Serenity Walk-In Bathtubs, we know a good thing when we see it. But, no good thing is perfect. Here’s what you need to know about the current limits on HISA Grants.

The HISA program is available for both service-connected Veterans and non-service-connected Veterans. On May 5, 2010 the President signed the Caregiver and Veterans Omnibus Health Service Act of 2010, increasing the amounts available under the HISA grant.

Home improvement benefits up to $6,800 may be provided for a:

  • service-connected condition
  • non-service-connected condition of a Veteran rated 50 percent or more service-connected

Home improvement benefits up to $2,000 may be provided to all other Veterans registered in the VA health care system.
