MILFORD, Mich. (WXYZ) — Michigan-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, Stronger Warrior Foundation (SWF) says they are accepting applications for the Adaptive Warrior Grant which provides up to $6,000.00 for home and/or auto modifications for disabled veterans regardless of the disability or how it occurred.

“The Adaptive Warrior program is designed to reach injured Veterans who need modifications for their homes or vehicles. Our goal is to help make a Veteran’s living situation easier; Whether their injury was service related or not,” said Zachary Osaer, Director of Adaptive Warrior. “The program is unique because it aims to help those who may not be getting sufficient monetary assistance for these needed modifications from the VA.“
