WASHINGTON – To support high-quality health care for Minnesota Veterans at the state’s Veterans homes, the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is awarding two grants totaling $5.2 million for improvements at the state-run facilities in Minneapolis and Silver Bay.

The grants will pay up to 65 percent of the cost for improvements at the two facilities.  Construction at both sites is scheduled to be completed within 180 days.

     

In Silver Bay, VA is providing $3.9 million for a $6 million project.  In Minneapolis, the grant will cover $1.3 million of a $2 million project.

Last year, VA spent about $1.5 billion in Minnesota on behalf of the state’s 400,000 Veterans.  VA operates major medical centers in Minneapolis and St. Cloud, eight outpatient clinics, Vet Centers in Duluth and St. Paul, and the Ft. Snelling National Cemetery in Minneapolis.

More information about the Minnesota state Veterans homes and related Minnesota services for Veterans are available on the Internet at http://www.mdva.state.mn.us.
