DESCRIPTION: For many disabled veterans, the lack of affordable, accessible housing is a barrier to living independently in the community. The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has programs available to help veterans who need their homes modified due to a disability related to their military service. This webinar will take a closer look at the programs that are available to assist veterans through VA with accessible housing. It will also focus on efforts that VetsFirst is taking in Washington to provide additional assistance for disabled veterans who need assistance in adapting their homes, including those who may not currently be eligible for VA assistance.
SPEAKER: Heather Ansley, Esq., MSW, Vice President of VetsFirst, a program of United Spinal Association
MODERATOR: Chris Neiweem, Director of Veterans Policy; VetsFirst
