grantsVeterans and organizations serving Veterans can now find information on VA grant programs all in one place, on our new VA grants webpage.

This new, more user-friendly page provides information on grant programs such as VA’s homeless program and Veterans cemetery grants services, and opportunities with federal partner agencies, including the Department of Labor, Veterans’ Employment and Training Service, and Housing and Urban Development’s Veterans Homelessness Prevention Demonstration.

“We rely on organizations outside of VA to make sure that our Veterans and their families can access the services they have earned,” said Thomas Graves, director of VA’s Grants Management Services. “Our focus is on helping those organizations spend more time working with Veterans and less time researching the funding to do it.”

The webpage can also be accessed here where a listing of all Veteran-focused federal financial assistance can be found.  Here Veterans and partner organizations will also find links to all VA grant programs and the resources that support them.

The VA grant programs include:
State Home Per Diem Program (SHPD)
Construction of State Home Facilities (SHC)
Grant and Per Diem (GPD)
Supportive Services for Veterans Families (SSVF)
National Veteran Sports Program (NVSP)
Specially Adapted Housing Assistance Technology (SAHAT)
Grants for Transportation of Veterans in Highly Rural Areas (TVHRA)
Rural Veterans Coordination Program (RVCP)
State Nurse Retention Grant Program (SNRGP)
Veterans Cemetery Grants Services (VCGS)

      Hi Levant,
      The benefits administration gave me this information: “Veterans who live abroad are eligible to the same benefits as Veterans living stateside with the exception of Loan Guaranty and medical care in some instances. Veterans can apply for compensation and pension benefits at any time; however, some benefits such as vocational rehabilitation & employment, education, and life insurance.”
      If you go to our webpage, you can get more information about those benefits: and please feel free to email me if you have any questions.

        Hello Yvonne.
        I want to submit a fully developed claim on line from overseas.
        Since some of the documents will need to be translated, would they kick my claim out of the FDC process?
        DBQ`s and all the medical evidence will be turned in at the same time.
        Thank you,

          Sorry, one more thing.
          My claim file is in Pittsburg since I live in Europe.
          Will the FDC claim be sent to Pittsburg automatically from E-benefits?

          • Yvonne Levardi May 9, 2014 at 10:28 am

            Hi Jose,

            Here’s what the benefits team tells me: The need for translation will most likely require the claim to be removed from the FDC lanes. However you should still file electronically as an FDC if you have no information that will need to be added. If you have the means, you can have them translated and then then file it as an FDC. If you choose this route, start your claim online and save it. This preserves your effective date and you have one year to upload your evidence and submit your claim.”

            If you have any more questions, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
