State Home Construction Grant Program
The VA State Veterans Home Construction Grant Program is a partnership between the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and the States to construct, renovate or repair State owned and operated nursing homes, domiciliaries and/or adult day health care facilities.
Homes are owned and operated by one of the 50 States, the District of Columbia, the U.S. Virgin Islands, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, Guam, the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands and American Samoa.
The program is authorized in Title 38 United States Code (USC) Section 8131-8137 and regulated in Title 38 Code of Federal Regulation (CFR) Part 59. VA may participate in up to 65 percent of the cost of construction or acquisition of State nursing homes or domiciliaries or for renovations/repairs to existing State Homes.
The Office of Construction & Facilities Management (CFM) provides technical assistance to VA's State Veterans Home Construction Grant Program. CFM helps review technical submittals for states' grant applications for feasibility and funding participation. CFM also assures quality control for the program by monitoring the design process and providing construction inspection services of the completed facilities, if needed.
