Gateway PVA Accessible Home Modification Grants (Year-round)

Members must first obtain two quotes from reputable contractors for the accessibility work on their home. If one of the quotes is from a family member who is a contractor, that contractor must be accredited by the Better Business Bureau and have a recorded performance bond. The two bids must be obtained and presented to the Gateway Board of Directors for approval prior to any work being started. The bids likewise must be for the exact same accessibility work on your home. Gateway PVA’s housing accessibility grant is available in the amount of $10,000 to all members. Funds will be paid directly to the approved contractor after successful completion of the work. This grant is available only after a member has exhausted all other available VA funding.

Gateway PVA Hand Control Grant (Year-round)

Non-service connected members, after exhausting any eligible modifications through the VA, may receive funding to obtain and have hand controls installed. Members must obtain two bids/quotes from reputable sources to obtain and have the necessary equipment installed for hand controls to drive the vehicle. The bids will be presented at an upcoming Gateway Board of Directors meeting for approval. Gateway will pay the vendors directly after the work is successfully completed. Do not have the work done prior to the Board approval because you will not be reimbursed after the fact. 

Gateway PVA Generator Grant (Annual)

The announcement of the grant opening will be made in the newsletter, email and social media, typically around the summer. This grant is for the amount of $5500 or less, and will only be paid to contractors after the work is done, or vendors after delivery. Grants can be applied to a portable generator (which should cost less than the $5500) or go toward an automatic permanent home generator (which will cost more than that grant amount). In either case, portable or permanent home generator, members are required to obtain two bids for the same product or scope of work. If the cost of work exceeds $5500, the member is responsible for the remaining amount.

Gateway PVA Accessible Vehicle Grant (Annual)

Typically in February and March, the Gateway Board of Directors will assess the financial status of the Chapter and determine how much funding to make available for vehicle modification grants. The announcement of the grant opening will be made in the newsletter, email and social media. Applications will need to be completed for the Board to assess eligibility (click here to download application). Gateway will award $10,000 grants for members to use in trading in their existing accessible vehicle to purchase a newer model, or a $35,000 grant for first time vehicle buyers (number of grants given are dependent on the financial status of the Chapter each year). These grants will be used for cost over and above any VA funds. Each year numerous applications are received and once the individual is determined eligible, names are randomly drawn and the winners are notified.
