PRLog - Feb. 25, 2013 - Rossi Construction, Inc. issued an informative statement to veterans across Tampa Bay on Monday, to discuss the topic of home improvement and modifications programs offered by the Veteran’s Administration to accommodate injured veterans for their disabilities.

Rossi Construction, Inc. explained that there are currently three types of grants available, but discussed two of the most popular grants.  

A representative from Rossi Construction, Inc. explained that the first type of grant available to injured veterans is a Home Improvement and Structural Alteration Grant (HISA).  The HISA grant offers financial resources to disabled veterans to make modifications to their homes to improve the overall access and mobility within the house.  Rossi Construction, Inc. explained that a particular focus is put on facilitating ease of use in the bathrooms.  It is not a requirement that the disability be service related, or service incurred, but veterans with service incurred injuries will be eligible for up to $6,800.00 in grant funding.

Rossi Construction, Inc. explained that eligibility for a HISA grant requires a doctor’s diagnosis that explains the medical reasoning for needing the home modifications, as well as bids from three contractors who conduct work similar to that of Rossi Construction, Inc. for the proposed cost of the work.  Appropriate paperwork can be obtained from the local VA hospital in either Tampa or St. Petersburg.  It is possible that the veteran can have these home modifications completed on a home he or she does not own, as long as the homeowner has approved of the work.

A representative from Rossi Construction, Inc. explained that the second type of grant available to injured veterans is a Specially Adapted Housing Grant (SAH).  The SAH grant provides financial resources to veterans for home modifications to make their house accessible to wheelchairs.  Rossi Construction, Inc. explained this grant is ONLY available to veterans with service incurred disabilities; very often the type brought about by recent deployment and improvised explosive devices.  The maximum amount allowable under SAH grants is a total of close to $64,000.00.

A veteran must have a service incurred disability that has resulted in the loss of function in at least one leg, if he or she is to qualify for a SAH grant.

Rossi Construction, Inc. is a general contractor located in Tampa Florida.  Rossi Construction specializes in residential and commercial construction.  Rossi has been building excellence by design since 1979.  Rossi Construction, Inc. can be found online by visiting http://www.jrossiconstruction.com.
