Frontier Housing awarded $60,000 to repair homes for veterans with disabilities

Morehead, KY – Frontier Housing will repair homes for at least six veterans with disabilities and low-incomes at no cost to them over the next three years due to a new grant.

Frontier Housing will be a subrecipient of the Veterans Home Repair & Modification Pilot, a U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development funding program. The Coalition for Home Repair, of which Frontier Housing is a member, will manage and distribute funds to home repair nonprofits nationwide to repair homes for 80+ veterans.

Frontier Housing has committed to providing an additional $42,000 in matched and leveraged resources to fulfill the requirements of the $60,000 grant award making the total local investment $102,000.

Frontier Housing has a 48-year history of repairing homes. Making accessible home modifications for low-income veterans with disabilities aligns with our mission: Frontier improves the quality of life for individuals and families, helping them achieve long-term stability, financial independence, and generational wealth.

There is more work to be done, with 23.9 percent of Kentucky veterans living with a service connected disability. Frontier Housing looks forward to pursuing future partnerships to provide critical home repairs for veterans and their families.
