San Diego helps disabled veterans with home improvements

SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – San Diego has a long, proud history of supporting the United States military, and is called home to over 100,000 active duty military personnel and approximately 240,000 veterans.

Many of these brave men and women have made sacrifices to keep our nation safe. Some of nearly 35,000 disabled veterans in San Diego now require accessibility improvements in their homes.

To improve the quality of life for disabled veterans, the City of San Diego is offering up to $1,000 for home improvements.

Councilman Chris Cate joined KUSI News to discuss the new program.

Funding is limited and will be granted on a first-come, first-served basis.
