Home Improvements Structural Alterations (HISA)
Under the Home Improvements Structural Alterations (HISA) program, Veterans
with service-connected disabilities or Veterans with non-service-connected
disabilities may receive assistance for any home improvement necessary
for the continuation of treatment or for disability access to the home
and essential lavatory and sanitary facilities.
A HISA grant is available to Veterans who have received a medical determination
indicating that improvements and structural alterations are necessary
or appropriate for the effective and economical treatment of his/her disability.

- Specific items required
- The diagnosis with medical justification
- The Veteran's name, address, SSN, and phone number(s)
