Some Veterans may be eligible for a one-time grant of up to $21,488.29 from the VA to purchase an adapted automobile. This grant is paid directly to the seller. In order to be eligible for this grant, a Veteran must be entitled to compensation due to one of the following:

· Loss, or permanent loss of use, of one or both feet;

· Loss, or permanent loss of use, of one or both hands;

· Permanent vision impairment in both eyes to a certain degree;

· Severe burn injury; or

· ALS.

Some Veterans may be eligible for an adaptive equipment grant, which can be paid more than once for certain equipment. This grant can be paid to either the Veteran or the seller. The following types of equipment can be covered by the grant:

· Power steering;

· Power windows;

· Power seats;

· Special equipment needed to get in and out of the vehicle.

To qualify for the adaptive equipment grant, the Veteran must be entitled to the same compensation required for the auto grant, or the Veteran must be entitled to compensation due to ankylosis of one or both hips.
