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 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. VA assures Congress that State Homes provide quality care through inspections, audits, and reconciliation of records conducted by the State Home program managers and the VA medical center of jurisdiction. Under a separate program, VA also provides per diem payments to States for the care of eligible veterans in 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.
Today there are more than 150 State Veterans Homes in 50 states and Puerto Rico with over 30,000 total beds.
