Is Time Running Out for the VA Temporary Residence Grant?


by Joe Wallace



In October, 2011, authorization for the Temporary Residence Grant or TRA was extended under Public Law 112-37. The Veterans Health Care Facilities Capital Improvement Act of 2011 was signed into law on October 5, 2011, and as a result TRA grant money availability was extended until December 31 2012.

TRA was created to help eligible disabled veterans adapt a family member’s home to make it more accessible for the veteran.

According to the FHA official site, “The Temporary Residence Adaptation (TRA) grant program is available to veterans and servicemembers who have been rated eligible for the Specially Adapted Housing section 2101 (a) (SAH) or the Special Home Adaptation section 2101(b) (SHA) grant on a one time basis.” But is time running out on TRA benefits? the authorization currently expires at the end of 2012, but there is an effort to extend that authorization.
