I am a disabled veteran 100% I lost my husband in 11-10-2007 is there any grants available to me and my kids?

Deal Score0

we lost our home ,our vehicles now my credit is shot.. we were left with basically the clothes on our backs.. after moving 3 times in one year we have found a wonderful home on a lake. The owner is willing to finace he just wants a 10% down payment.. I live off disability and due to medical problems and my girls dealing with the sudden death of their dad I am having trouble finding that type of money. I want to give my girls stability again and let them feel safe. this home is a perfect fit for us and the payments are well within my budget I just can’t find the money for the down payment.. My name was on the mortgage of the other house that got foreclosed on because our income was cut drastically when he passed.. I have never used my VA housing loan and do not even know if I can now.. The last 18 mts have been a severe strain and struggle for us.. anyone with any advice it is very welcome.. I just want my kids to feel safe again.. thanks for reading this and as I stated any advice is appreciated.

    You are still eligible for a VA loan, however, your credit history still may keep you from getting one.
    I found the following on the source cited below:
    “A borrower whose previous residence or other real property was foreclosed on or given a deed-in-lieu of foreclosure within the previous two years since the disposition date is generally not eligible for a VA insured mortgage. If the foreclosure was on a VA loan, the applicant may not have full entitlement available for the new loan.”
    There is quite a bit more information on that site and you might find it helpful to read it.
    Sorry, but I am not knowledgeable about grants for which you might have eligibility.

    If you are paraplegic, then the Christopher and Dana Reeve Foundation can supply you with grants.

    Depending on your state, check the Vocational Rehabilitation Center for people with disabilities. They are supply quality of life support.

    I would definitely check again with VA. You might also want to check with USAA for any loans.

    If you’re searching for Grants, search on .gov sites, not on any ads. Those are all scams.

    Try also veteransbenefits.com.
