Available Funds as of February 24, 2017: $67,779
Housing Assistance for Veterans (HAVEN) funds assist with necessary modifications to homes of U.S. veterans and active-duty personnel, disabled by active military service since September 11, 2001. Necessary home repairs and/or modifications are covered under the grant program. HAVEN funds are available until the funds are exhausted or until December 31, 2017, whichever occurs first. The funds are disbursed on a first-come, first-served, homeowner-by-homeowner basis.
HAVEN Program funds may be used to:
Modify an existing home to meet the needs of a U.S. veteran or service member.
Offset construction costs of a newly constructed home.
Pay for a third-party inspection, up to the lesser of 15 percent of the total modification cost or $500.
Up to $5,000 will be granted toward the modification of a qualifying property. If the FHLB Dallas member or another lender contributes at least $350 toward financial or other concessions related to the modification, FHLB Dallas will grant up to $7,500 toward the modification.
