State Home Grant Program

(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 VA State Veterans Home Construction Grant Program (SHCGP) 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.

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 and Facilities Management (CFM) provides design and construction technical consultation to VA’s State Home Construction Grant Program and Grants and Per Diem Capital Grant Program. CFM assists in reviewing grant applications and technical submissions for compliance with VA and Federal mandates as well as grant technical requirements.

Today there are more than 160 State Veterans Homes in 50 states and Puerto Rico with over 30,000 beds.
